About

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.

Glenstone Expansion

Throughout the construction period, Glenstone will remain open to the public. In the future, its existing Charles Gwathmey-designed museum building will continue to present rotating exhibitions of works from the collection.
