Part of the educational mission of the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery is to collect, preserve, and display works of art for the University and surrounding community. As part of this effort, the gallery mounts exhibitions of art of historical and educational importance throughout the year, maintains a loan program throughout the University so more of the collection may be seen, and works to expand and improve the permanent collection. GW has collected artwork since 1821 and now owns works by such renowned artists as Rembrandt Peale, Gilbert Stuart, Marc Chagall, William Hogarth, and Sam Gilliam. With more than 3,600 works of art, the GW Permanent Collection constantly is growing through gifts and purchases.
GW's Luther W. Brady Art Gallery, which opened in March 2001, is the professional showcase for art at GW. Luther W. Brady, B.A. '46, M.D. '48, the gallery's namesake and benefactor, is a world-renowned oncologist who earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees at GW. He also received the honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts from GW in May 2004 and has served as a member of the University's Board of Trustees.
