The George Washington University and the Corcoran

Last month, George Washington University, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and Corcoran College of Art + Design, and the National Gallery of Art proposed a collaboration amongst them. The history between GWU and the Corcoran is worth noting. The founder of the Corcoran Gallery, William Wilson Corcoran, was president of GW’s Board of Trustees from 1869 until 1872, and he founded the school, called the Corcoran Scientific School in 1884.
