Smithsonian American Art Museum



Host your corporate special event at one of Washington's most elegant and dazzling venues

Host your corporate special event at one of Washington's most elegant and dazzling venues. Whether you are planning an intimate dinner for 100 guests or a cocktail reception for 1200, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, housed in a gloriously renovated National Historic Landmark building, is sure to make your next event picture perfect. The Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard, with its elegant glass canopy, is one of the largest and most magnificent event spaces in Washington. Designed by the world-renowned architectural firm Foster + Partners, the enclosed courtyard provides a distinctive, contemporary accent to the museums' Greek Revival building. The spectacular decor of the Victorian-embellished Great Hall includes columns and an intricate stained glass rotunda and was the site of President Lincoln's second inaugural ball. The Luce Foundation Center for American Art displays block-long skylights showcasing more than 3,300 works of art on two balconied levels overlooking a marble-floored sculpture gallery.
