Annual Report 2016

The National Gallery of Art opened to the public on March 17, 1941. Founded by Andrew W. Mellon and accepted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on behalf of the nation, the Gallery serves a singular role in American cultural life. As the nation's art museum, it is dedicated to preserving, collecting, exhibiting, and fostering an understanding of works of art at the highest possible museum and scholarly standards. Throughout the Gallery's 75th-anniversary year we celebrated this mission and the federal–private partnership that enables us to showcase the nation's fine art collection.

In honor of the Gallery's 75th anniversary, the restored three-tiered bronze Andrew W. Mellon Memorial Fountain, inoperable since 2008, was unveiled. We were delighted to accept the transfer of responsibility for this important site from the National Park Service. We are very grateful for the generosity of the Richard King Mellon Foundation and their major leadership gift to restore and renovate the site, which now stands as a beautiful entrance at the apex of the Federal Triangle.
