Fluffy goldenrod, geometrically dizzying boardwalks, and iris seedheads are just a few of the visual pleasures you’ll find at Glenstone in the wintertime. (Don’t forget - we also have plenty of warm indoor spaces for you to explore, too.)

Then and now… A few weeks ago, spent two days with artist Gary Hill () and looking at Gary’s incredible 1992 installation “Tall Ships”.

For the past year, Small Data (with lots of help from Emma Dickson) has been working with Glenstone on migrating “Tall Ships” from ’s original software and 16 LaserDisc players to new code that runs on a few Raspberry Pi microcomputers – quite the feat of digital conservation.

What is, “Tall Ships”, you ask? We’ll be sharing a little bit more about that in the coming months – watch this space or visit ’s page for more about the process of conserving the work in preparation for future exhibitions.

The in Harlem recently announced the 2022-2023 cohort for its signature Artist-in-Residence program. Please join us in congratulating this year’s cohort of Artists in Residence: Jeffrey Meris, Devin N. Morris, and Charisse Pearlina Weston! These three artists will be the first cohort to benefit from another recent development—Glenstone Foundation has endowed Studio Museum’s Artist-in-Residence program in perpetuity.

The Studio Museum’s foundational Artist-in-Residence program gives emerging artists of African and Afro-Latinx descent an unparalleled opportunity to develop their practice in an eleven-month residency. Alumni of the program, who now number nearly 150, include some of today’s most significant and innovative artists.

Glenstone is honored to support this vital program.

It’s all smiles on our nature walks.

On your visit to Glenstone, you can take a guided nature walk through the grounds of Glenstone every day that we are open at 1pm. These walks are led by members of our extremely knowledgeable Grounds and Guide teams, and give you an opportunity to ask questions about our landscape, outdoor sculptures, and sustainability practices.

“I think that’s really what makes this so enriched and unique… the art and the architecture are not disengaged and are not incompatible philosophically. They’re mutually engaged, and make a much more dynamic experience. There is not a moment when the visitor is not experiencing architecture, sculpture, and landscape recombined in various ways. They never overwhelm or contradict one another, but rather engage one another in a perceptual dialogue.”—, architect of the Gallery at Glenstone, on the Glenstone experience.

With a new presentation of work by R.H. Quaytman now open, we are very glad to welcome visitors back to the Gallery to experience the way that Gwathmey’s design unifies art, architecture, and nature.

Now on View in the Galllery: R.H. Quaytman

Visitors encounter a 110-foot-wide panoramic painting comprised of 23 panels at the first exhibition of the work of R.H. Quaytman (American/Irish, b. 1961) in the DC area. This work, “Morning: Chapter 30”, 2016 nearly spans the entire wall of Glenstone’s Gallery building.

The exhibition, organized and designed with the artist, opened yesterday, and we look forward to welcoming visitors to experience Quaytman’s richly layered, nuanced work. Working in oil paint, gouache, varnish, glitter, tinted gesso, and ink, among other materials, Quaytman creates compositions that shift back and forth from abstract to figurative, sometimes within a singular painting.

We’re excited to share some very big news - Michael Heizer’s long-awaited, legendary sculpture the ‘City’ will open to the public this September! A mile and a half long and half a mile wide, the sculpture is located in a remote valley of the high desert of eastern Nevada and has been under construction by Michael Heizer for more than fifty years.

Glenstone Museum is thrilled to join with the Triple Aught Foundation and a cross-country coalition of museums to sustain this long-awaited work of art in perpetuity. We are partners with MoMA The Museum of Modern Art, LACMA Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in this endeavor to support an artist whose sculptures ‘Compression Line’, 1968/2016, and ‘Collapse’, 1967/2016, are both on long-term view at Glenstone. To learn more about the opening of the ‘City,’ visit our website: https://glst.one/3KdMZyI

We are thrilled to announce our fall 2022 exhibitions featuring R.H. Quaytman (September) and Wade Guyton (October)! ⁣

R.H. Quaytman combines painted and silk-screened images on wood panels to create densely layered compositions that shift between abstraction and figuration. For the past two decades Quaytman has conceived each body of work as a “chapter,” modeled on the structure of a book, in an ongoing investigation of the history of picture-making. The exhibition will feature two bodies of paintings, “Morning: Chapter 30” (2016), a 113-foot-long panoramic work that responds to a fraught moment in U.S. politics, and “The Sun Does Not Move: Chapter 35” (2019), which explores Quaytman’s artistic and personal relationship to Eastern European abstract art made under communist rule. ⁣

Wade Guyton is known for modifying and intentionally misusing consumer technologies like inkjet printers and scanners to explore our evolving relationship to images and meaning-making in the digital era. The presentation will feature a group of 26 paintings that Guyton began in March of 2020, capturing the collective isolation, confusion, and social upheaval that pervaded the first year of the pandemic as he worked alone in his New York studio.⁣

Now on view: Richard Serra’s “Four Rounds: Equal Weight, Unequal Measure” housed in a new building designed as a collaboration between Serra and Architect Thomas Phifer.

Sited in a densely wooded area along the Woodland Trail, the 4,000-square-foot concrete structure was designed by Thomas Phifer of Thomas Phifer and Partners, in collaboration with the artist Richard Serra. Inside the building is “Four Rounds: Equal Weight, Unequal Measure,” 2017, the third large-scale sculpture by Serra to be installed at Glenstone. The sculpture is composed of four cylindrical forms made of forged steel, each weighing 82 tons, with the cylinders ranging in height and diameter.

Arthur Jafa’s “akingdoncomethas” 2018, acts as a centerpiece in his exhibition in Room 6 of the Pavilions. The video is comprised of broadcast footage of Black Christian fellowship that spans two hours, corresponding roughly with the duration of a typical Sunday church service. Intercut with documentation of wildfires, the rousing, dynamic performances by preachers and gospel musicians celebrate the restorative power of faith in times of crisis. In Jafa’s words, he is making art that “replicates the power, beauty, and alienation of Black music.”

Now on view in Room 2: Doris Salcedo

This exhibition is comprised of a selection of sculptures by Doris Salcedo (Colombian, b. 1958), the first solo exhibition of her work in the Washington, D.C. area. Salcedo, who lives and works in Bogotá, Colombia, creates powerful and moving sculptures that reflect the myriad ways in which violence and oppression manifest in the modern world. By way of a time-intensive and laborious process, the forms her sculptures achieve are poetic and compassionate translations of the words and experiences of those who have suffered harm.

Ahora en exposición en la Sala 2: Doris Salcedo

Esta exposición está compuesta por una selección de esculturas de Doris Salcedo (colombiana, n. 1958), la primera presentación individual de la artista en el área de Washington, D. C. Doris Salcedo, que vive y trabaja en Bogotá, Colombia, crea esculturas impactantes y conmovedoras que reflejan el sinfín de maneras en as que la violencia y la opresión se manifiestan en el mundo moderno. A través de un proceso que consume tiempo y es arduo, las formas que alcanzan sus esculturas son traducciones poéticas y compasivas de los testimonios y las experiencias de quienes han sufrido daño.

Every year, our grounds team works to plant this horticultural behemoth over a period of a few days. We put in thousands of flowering annuals according to the artist’s vision, creating a colorful, living sculpture that blooms into the fall.

Looking for a piece of Glenstone in Washington, D.C.? Lawrence Weiner's "Catalogue #471", 1980 is currently on long-term loan at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library branch of DC Public Library. Library visitors can find this artwork in the west stairwell of the architectural landmark’s 3rd floor. Fitting for a library, the text of this piece muses on the process of how things change. At any moment, we might experience a new book, a new building, or a new work of art, and these things might set us in motion on a new trajectory. Lawrence Weiner, known for his thoughtful text-based works that he regarded as a form of sculpture, specially adapted the design and scale of the work to this location prior to his death in December 2021.

Our visitors often comment on the clarity of the glass windows in the Pavilions. Our Facilities team takes special care to clean the glass every week. The 22-foot-high windows around the Water Court are cleaned with a specialized, portable, and chemical-free cleaning system called the “hydro tube.” Water is filtered through the tube, then sprayed or brushed onto the windows. This doesn’t require any soap or detergent, keeping the windows sparkling and the Water Court chemical-free!

Now on view in Room 9: Simone Leigh’s “Village Series”, 2021

Leigh’s practice is rooted in the exploration of Black female-identified subjectivity and is informed by her interest in African and African American art and a background in philosophy, cultural studies, and Black feminist thought. Her sculptural practice frequently combines architectural and female forms rendered in materials associated with a range of material cultures found in regions of Africa and its diaspora.

Charles Ray conceived of "Untitled", 1973-1974 while he was an undergraduate student at the University of Iowa. Currently on view in Room 8 of the Pavilions, the sculpture carefully balances iron and steel on the edge of a pedestal. Dynamic in form, the work appears to float effortlessly in the space.

We are excited to share that Glenstone’s spring 2022 exhibition lineup will feature the work of Simone Leigh and Doris Salcedo! 🎉

On February 24, a recent work by Simone Leigh, “Village Series”, 2021, will go on view in Room 9 of the Pavilions. Leigh’s practice is rooted in the exploration of Black female-identified subjectivity and is informed by her interest in African and African American art and a background in philosophy, cultural studies, and Black feminist thought. Her sculptural practice frequently combines architectural and female forms rendered in materials associated with a range of material cultures found in regions of Africa and its diaspora. “Village Series” will remain on view at Glenstone through spring 2023.

Beginning in May, Room 2 of the Pavilions will be dedicated to a presentation of sculptures by Doris Salcedo, the first of its kind in the Washington, D.C. area. Salcedo grounds her sculptural practice in research and firsthand interviews with survivors of political and domestic violence. By way of a time-intensive and laborious process, the forms her sculptures achieve are poetic and compassionate translations of the words and experiences of those who have suffered harm. “Disremembered X”, 2020/2021, a sculpture in four parts commissioned by Glenstone, takes the form of hanging shawls or jackets comprised of raw silk thread and thousands of burnt sewing needles. The piece originated from interviews the artist conducted with American mothers who have lost children to gun violence. The exhibition will remain on view through the end of the year.
Glenstone is proud to dedicate our early 2022 exhibitions to these two artists and can’t wait for our visitors to experience their work.

Glenstone Guides in the Emerging Professionals Program have the opportunity to work with other departments in the museum as a part of their professional development. One of our guides, Drew, has spent the last five months working with the Grounds Department. Today, we are sharing his thoughts on the ways in which landscape and art intersect:

“Artists often work in the orbit of subjects so magnetic that they can’t help but revisit them throughout their lives. The environmental forces directing the labor of Glenstone’s Grounds team is not so different.

We have a relationship with the landscape that grows stronger through repetition. Much like On Kawara’s relationship with time, or Vija Celmins’ continued exegesis on images of the profound; a sustained dialogue with the environment is what makes us successful in the long term.”

Further insight from Adam Schoenberg on his composition Finding Rothko, opening Saturday's Mozart Symphony No. 40 concert: This is the opening of the final movement . It was a journey to see this painting as it was housed at a museum that wasn’t yet open to the public back in 2006. I hope you can now visit the exquisite Glenstone Museum in Potomac, Maryland, and I hope you can join us this Saturday for performances of Finding Rothko with Brett Mitchell and The Pasadena Symphony | The Pasadena POPS.

Visited this incredible place, thanks to Michelle T. Dorlon, yesterday. Worth a trip if you are in the DC or Baltimore area. 160 acres with large installations amidst the landscaping. Installations vary seasonally and include a variety of media and styles. All beautifully displayed to encourage thoughtful viewing. Take time to talk to the hosts about the works and buildings. You'll know them by their gray clothing.
