The Dimock Gallery was an important part of the Washington, D.C. cultural scene for nearly fifty years as an educational gallery on The George Washington University campus.
From staging groundbreaking exhibitions such as Temples of Gold, Crowns of Silver: Reflections of Majesty in the Viceregal Americas, Howard Hodgkin Prints: Vision and Collaboration,
The Painterly Vision, and Goya Los Caprichos to providing a "hands-on" experience for students in the Department of Fine Arts and Art History to curate and present their own creative
endeavors, the Dimock functioned as the only art gallery on campus for much of its history. From time to time, exhibitions were staged in conjunction with Lisner Auditorium performances, such as
Flamenco Festivals, other international collaborations, and academic programs, making Lisner a "creative hub" in the center of the GW campus. The mission of the Dimock Gallery changed to solely
providing a forum for student exhibitions in 2000 when a new University Art Gallery was opened in the new Media and Public Affairs Building and later dedicated as the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery.
The Dimock Gallery was formally closed as an exhibition space in 2012.
