About 

The Athenaeum is dedicated to celebrating artists in the DC/MD/VA region and maintaining our historic building as a vital asset to the community.

 

The Athenaeum is home to the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association (NVFAA), a membership organization dedicated to the maintenance and preservation of the building and the celebration of regional arts. 

Please join us to help preserve the building and keep it filled with arts programs.

The Athenaeum Gallery mounts a wide range of exhibitions from edgy to classic, representing a wide range of media and style.  Concerts, dance performances, and literary events including poetry slams are staged in the stately main room.  Classes such as yoga and ballet occur on the gleaming pine floors. We strive to make every visit interesting. 

Our galleries and charming rear courtyard are an ideal location for weddings, receptions, business meetings or other special events.

The light-filled, historic Athenaeum is filled with regional art, vibrant cultural programming, and an ideal venue for parties and special events.
