The museum recently acquired "Great America" (1994) by Chicago artist Kerry James Marshall. The acrylic-and-collage canvas is stretched directly onto a wall in the East Building Concourse Gallery.

Kreeger Museum »

Carol Brown Goldberg has been a fixture on Washington's art scene since training under Gene Davis at the Corcoran in the 1970s. Her bronze sculpture "RA 054" is a seven-foot piece whose figurative qualities contrast with the more abstract sculptures dotting the Kreeger's 5½-acre property.

Alice S. Kandell, a New York psychologist, author, and photographer, has collected Tibetan Buddhist art for four decades. This summer, she donated her collection to the Sackler. The star is a shrine room with 200-plus objects including Buddhas, bodhisattvas, and bronzes.
