Bliss and Orientation Galleries

A small space located immediately to the right of the Museum lobby, the Bliss Gallery is used for small-scale, rotating exhibitions related to the founders of Dumbarton Oaks, Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss. Selected artworks highlight themes relevant to the collections and institutional research programs, with a particular focus on the Blisses’ collecting practices. The Orientation Gallery offers computer access to the Dumbarton Oaks website and collections database and hosts occasional special exhibitions of photography and other works.
