The Society is delighted to present its permanent exhibit, Window to Washington, featuring the Kiplinger Collection, the most important donation in the organization’s 188-year history. The exhibit explores the development of our nation’s capital, from a sleepy southern town into a modern metropolis, as told through the works of artists who witnessed the city’s changes. The exhibit will include some of the collection’s rarest and most iconic artworks and features rotating pieces from the Society's other holdings.


Please also take the opportunity to view our online exhibitions. Media may also download the exhibit press kit.
