Corcoran Gallery’s Merger With D.C. Institutions Approved

A District of Columbia Superior Court judge approved a plan for the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington’s oldest private museum, to merge with the National Gallery of Art and George Washington University.

Today’s ruling permits the parties to proceed with the transfer of ownership of the Corcoran’s historic 17th Street building and the College of Art and Design to George Washington University, and of custody of its art collection to the National Gallery, the institutions said in a statement.
