The Corcoran School invites you to a free, triple exhibition opening for Lone Prairie, Bridging Boundaries and Full Circle: Hue and Saturation in the Washington Color School on Thursday, June 14 at 500 17th Street NW.

This year, the Corcoran School welcomed works of art from the Corcoran Gallery collection to serve as the foundation of a rich research collection available to students, faculty and the public. They also are pleased to welcome the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery to the first floor of the Flagg Building. For all of their summer events, click here.

Since integrating into GW, the Corcoran is undergoing a multi-dimensional transformation, while still maintaining founder William Wilson Corcoran’s vision of a place “dedicated to the art and used solely for the purpose of encouraging the American Genius.”

Lone Prairie: Video Installation by M12

Opening Reception: Thursday, June 14 from 6pm to 8pm
M12’s Lone Prairie is an experiential installation that presents video and sound field recordings captured on the High Plains of Eastern Colorado over the last year. The 6-channel sound and video installation will explore the spatial atmosphere surrounding The Last Chance Module Array, a land work created in 2015-16 in a former agricultural field. This work is much like a ghost structure – something akin to what Robert Smithson referred to as a “ruin in reverse.”

Opening Reception: Thursday, June 14 from 7pm to 8pm
Drawing from the GW Collection along with critical loans, paintings and mixed media will provide examples of the Washington Color School and its legacy. This exhibition marks the first for the Luther W.
