The Collaborative is a guest artist exhibition program developed to support Washington area artists.
"We are thrilled to be in partnership with arts organizations across the city to present work of contemporary Washington area artists. The Collaborative furthers our mission by supporting and spotlighting the immense talent of visual and performing artists in our city. We are honored to champion the work of these artists and provide many of them the opportunity to present their work in a museum for the first time." - Helen Chason, Director
This initiative started in June 2021 with a collaboration with The Nicholson Project. Inaugural exhibitions included installations by Stan Squirewell and Hoesy Corona.
