East Building, National Gallery of Art Has Reopened

The iconic I. M. Pei-designed East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington reopened to the public on June 30, 2022. The building had been closed since February 28, 2022.

The Atrium sports new panes of glass that have restored light to levels originally seen when the building first opened on June 1, 1978. Visitors now enter through a more accessible main entrance.

The East Building displays two new exhibitions:
