Washingtonians and their out of town (or in town) guests can take part in merging art and luxury hospitality together beginning March 19th when the epitome of Americana, the Park Hyatt Washington DC and the Corcoran Gallery of Art (one of my favorites in this city) partner together with the Culture at the Park package, which will showcase a distinguished collection of early American art. Featuring the gallery’s American Art to 1945, a revered collection of American art dating from 1718 to 1945, the Culture at the Park package includes a docent-led tour of the exhibit, along with an official exhibition catalogue, the perfect souvenir to recapture the artistic getaway.
Culture at the Park is available March 19 through December 31, 2012, with rates starting at $279 plus tax (single or double occupancy.) The package includes the following amenities:
- Complimentary upgrade to a Premier Park Deluxe room, combining dynamic modernism with classic American style
- Continental breakfast table for two in the Lounge, per day
- An exclusive docent-led tour, for two, of American Art to 1945, on display at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, along with the exhibitionâ€™s catalogue, Corporate Gallery of Art: American Paintings to 1945
- Two all-American seasonal or classic cocktails of choice, to enjoy in the Lounge after viewing the exhibition
American Art to 1945, the Corcoranâ€™s signature collection of American art dating from 1718 to 1945, showcases the once-private holdings of William Wilson Corcoran. His initial collection of landscape paintings, genre scenes, portraits and sculptures has grown to include over 500 paintings, 200 sculptures, and 2,400 works on paper.Â The collectionâ€™s most celebrated works include Hudson River School painting, American Impressionism and early 20th-century realism.
