Discover how personal art collections evolve from a conversation with collectors Hugh and Marie Halff, moderated by Chief Curator Eleanor Harvey. Expertise will also be offered in a lecture by Barbara Guggenheim, an internationally known art consultant.
The Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery—two museums that tell America's stories through art, history and biography—share a newly renovated National Historic Landmark building in downtown Washington D.C. The Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture, named in honor of a generous gift from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, includes the two museums and their special-purpose facilities: the Lunder Conservation Center, the Luce Foundation Center for American Art, the Nan Tucker McEvoy Auditorium and the Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard.

The museums are located in the heart of Washington, D.C.’s vibrant new downtown, a few blocks from the National Mall. The main entrance is at 8th and F Streets, N.W.

Admission is free
