The Archives of American Art’s primary exhibition space, the gallery is located two blocks away from our D.C. Research Center. It can be found on the first floor of the Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture in D.C.’s Penn Quarter neighborhood—also home to the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery—through the doorway off the Courtyard Café.
The Lawrence A. Fleischman Gallery enables the Archives to present interactive and informative exhibitions from among the more than 16 million items documenting the history of visual arts in America.
The gallery was named in honor of Lawrence A. Fleischman, who with E.P. Richardson, founded the Archives of American Art at the Detroit Institute of Arts in 1954.
The Archives’ exhibition program is made possible through the generous support of Barbara G. Fleischman.
