The Kreeger Museum, an art museum and the former residence of David and Carmen Kreeger, rests on five acres of sculpture-filled gardens and is surrounded by tranquil woods. Designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson, it is among the few examples of his work in DC. The Kreeger's focus on 19th and 20th century paintings is evidenced by works of Monet, Picasso, Renoir, Cezanne, Chagall, Miro, and Stella. Also included in the permanent collection are works of prominent Washington artists and outstanding examples of traditional African and Asian art.
Special Exhibition: Charles Hinman: Structures, 1965-2014, on view April 18-July 31, 2019
Public Hours: 10am-4pm Tuesday through Saturday
Charles Hinman is a New York-based abstract painter who pioneered three-dimensional, shaped canvases starting in the 1960s. This is the first museum show of works by Hinman in the Washington area and the first survey in more than 30 years. Hinman is best known for his compositions that emerge from the wall in a collection of hand-built and multicolored planes, expanding the conventional space of the canvas. Guest curated by Danielle O’Steen, the exhibition offers a look at 50 years of the artist’s innovative work.
