Randall Neighbor Day 2009 is Coming Up

The Corcoran Gallery of Art is once again offering free admission (normal admission is $10) to residents of ANC 6D on Saturday, December 26th at the third annual Randall Neighbor Day 2009. ID is required in order to prove residency. The Corcoran is located at 500 17th Street, NW. In addition to the permanent collection, there are special exhibits, including Sargent and the Sea and American Bronzes from the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Randall Neighbor Day was one of the community benefits that the ANC negotiated with the Corcoran as a part of their PUD submission in 2007 for the redevelopment of the old Randall School site on I Street as their new Corcoran College of Art + Design campus and apartment building complex. However, this project has been delayed for a couple years while the Corcoran tries to find a new development partner.
