The new de la Cruz Gallery of Art will showcase the works of national and international artists as well as Georgetown University students.

The 2,500-square-foot gallery will be located in a former lecture hall and black box theater space in the university’s historic Walsh building, set in the southeast corner of the campus near the heart of the Georgetown community.

Details

  • A 2,500-SF, multi-media art gallery set on the Georgetown University campus
  • Gallery designed to meet requirements of major lending institutions
  • Comprehensive renovation includes entrance vestibule, gallery, support spaces, restrooms, and a catering kitchen
“One thing we see it doing is raising the profile of Georgetown as a visual arts center. No less important to us is what it’s going to mean for our students and the whole campus.”

A DESTINATION FOR ART

The design of the new gallery includes both interior and exterior modifications to the university’s circa-1958 Walsh building, located near the Key Bridge along Georgetown’s western edge. A new glass entrance vestibule will anchor the building and orient visitors to the gallery. Working in collaboration with exhibit designers Howard+Revis, the design team is creating a dynamic gallery space that will host monographic and thematic art shows and support traveling collections. The renovation also includes support space for exhibit assembly, restrooms, and a catering kitchen.
