    Been here 25+ times
    Sit on a bench and close your eyes. Breathe in the spirit of art and the passion that exudes in every room. Enjoy every aspect of this gallery: it is a treasure and a special part of DC.

    Free Summer Saturdays are almost over! A trained docent at hand helps, but browsing at your pace is cool, too - might catch a special something otherwise missed. Like a fellow Bison's work, perhaps...
