Diane Brown: Rx Art Founder and Executive Director, Diane Brown, has forged a professional path that draws equally from her professional beginnings as a pre-med student at the University of Wisconsin and from her career as a New York based gallerist.  Brown has been active in the field of contemporary art since 1973; from 1976-1982, she owned and operated the Diane Brown Gallery in Washington DC and New York City (1983-1992). These spaces played host to some of the most significant artists of the time and that, in turn, has set the standard for the artistic aims of RxArt: a belief in art’s ability to not only transcend but transform its settings and viewers. Brown also worked as a private dealer, a consultant to private collectors for collection development and management, and as the curator of a corporate photography collection in New York City.  She has lectured widely on contemporary art, taught courses for collectors at the Smithsonian Institution and served as an adjunct professor in Arts Administration at New York University from 1994 - 1998.

The Museum building is accessible and has elevator access to all floors. Service animals are welcome. Learn more about access services and amenities.
