After two years of renovations, the Renwick Gallery in DC has recently re-opened to the public with Wonder, an impressive exhibition of large-scale, opulent installations from nine prominent contemporary artists.

For over 150 years the Renwick has celebrated American art and those pushing the boundaries in their craft; it is the first building in the US built explicitly as an art museum.

A branch museum of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Renwick Gallery is located at Pennsylvania Ave and 17th St, NW.
10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily. Free admission.
