A world-renowned art collection right at your door — literally! The Walter E. Washington Convention Center art collection is the best kept secret in the nation’s capital. In addition to being a state-of-the-art Convention Center, the building is home to one of the largest public art collections in Washington, DC outside of museums, with 137 works by 93 artists. One highlight is Sol LeWitt's Wall Drawing #1103, encompassing a 3 story staircase. Another is the Shaw Wall, a 72’ wall of dynamic artwork that honors and celebrates the Shaw community, the neighborhood that is home to the Convention Center.
