The Culture Trip (March 2014) Washington DC’s 10 Contemporary Art Galleries You Should Know About As the seat of the American government, Washington, D.C., is not the most obvious art and culture destination in the USA. But with a few museums among the finest in the country, and a number of forward-thinking curators and gallerists, the city is as surprising as it is enthusiastic about its art. We take a look at ten of the best contemporary art galleries and museums in Washington, D.C. Morton Fine Art Morton Fine Art gallery has two exhibition spaces in Washington. one in Lower Adams Morgan, a neighbourhood which hosts many art and entertainment venues. The other is the entire city: every two years, the gallery staff curates a series of mobile exhibitions for the so-called *a pop-up project that might indeed pop up just about anywhere in Washington. But those who missed these itinerant shows should not be put off: the exhibited artworks can still be seen in the gallery’s permanent venue. *a pop-up project is only one of the initiatives undertaken by Morton Fine Art to innovate the contemporary art market and connect a wider audience to museum-quality artworks.
