Renwick Renovation


A major renovation of the Renwick Gallery currently is underway and the building is closed to the public. The lead architects are Westlake Reed Leskosky, based in Cleveland with offices in Washington, D.C. This project includes completely renewed infrastructure, enhanced historic features and other upgrades that will make the National Historic Landmark building a 21st-century destination attraction.


Photographs of the Renwick Gallery, both historical and contemporary, can be downloaded for use in media coverage of the Renwick Gallery only from the Images link in the Press Room. Email americanartpressoffice[at]si.edu for the password.
