Last month, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design shocked the arts world by announcing that it effectively would cease to exist as an independent institution and its artwork, building and school program would be taken over by the National Gallery of Art and The George Washington University. Less than two weeks before the details of the takeover are to be announced, Post Art and Architecture Critic Philip Kennicott will lead a town hall discussion examining the outstanding questions the local arts community has about the future of Washington’s oldest private art museum.
