Art Bank Collection

The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) is the official District government agency for arts and culture. Established in 1968, DCCAH’s primary mission is to provide grants, professional opportunities, educational enrichment, and other services to individuals and nonprofit organizations throughout the District of Columbia. In support of visual artists and art galleries in Washington DC, DCCAH purchases fine art from metropolitan artists annually to grow the Art Bank Collection. Artwork in this collection is owned by DCCAH under the District’s Art in Public Places Program and loaned to District Government agencies for display in public areas and offices of government buildings.
