National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D. C.

1250 New York Ave NW, Washington, D. C.
The National Museum of Women in the Arts was incorporated in December 1981 as a private, non-profit museum, and the Holladay donation became the core of the institution's permanent collection. After purchasing and extensively renovating a former Masonic Temple, NMWA opened in April 1987 with the inaugural exhibition "American Women Artists, 1830–1930". The collection currently contains more than 4,500 works in a variety of styles and media, spanning from the 16th century to present day.
