In September 2006, Glenstone opened its doors to the public, inviting visitors to discover a new kind of museum. Glenstone is located on 200 acres of land just outside Washington, D.C. on a former foxhunting estate. Over the course of twenty years, the property was transformed into an environment where art, architecture, and landscape combine to create a singular and unified experience.
At the heart of Glenstone is its preeminent collection of post-World War II and contemporary art. Rotating exhibitions are presented in a building designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects, while monumental outdoor sculpture is presented in a landscape designed by Peter Walker and Partners. These settings exist to exhibit works of art that represent the greatest historical shifts in how art is seen and experienced.
