Art Scene

The Textile Museum reopens at GW

Art Scene March 21, 2015, will mark the opening of a new building housing the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum. Designed by Hartman-Cox Architects, the six-floor, state-of-the-art structure recently earned LEED Gold certification. The building adjoins historic Woodhull House, which has been renovated as part of the museum.

Finally relocated after the 2011 announcement that it would join the GW campus, The Textile Museum will continue to showcase its collection of more than 19,000 objects. The complex will also house the Albert H. Small Center for Washingtoniana Collection and serve as a hub for arts education and special events.

The museum is located at 701 21st Street, NW. museum.gwu.edu
