From the Bulletin

The Bulletin is published twice a year for friends of the National Gallery of Art under the auspices of the development office. It offers insights into the current collecting and exhibiting of works of art at the Gallery and opens with a letter from the director’s desk. The Bulletin also includes a short article by the dean of the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts focusing on current activities of the Center in its programs of fellowships, meetings, research, and publications. These regular features are archived here.
