WASHINGTON, D.C. – May 23, 2017 – The Ritz-Carlton, Georgetown, one of the most distinctive boutique hotels in D.C.’s historic Georgetown neighborhood, has partnered with DTR Modern Galleries to put on a dynamic, rotating art show in The Living Room, the property’s intimate lounge accented by exposed brick, plush leather seating and a dramatic 130-foot wood-burning fireplace.

Driven by their fervent sense of community and unwavering support of local businesses, The Ritz-Carlton, Georgetown and DTR Modern Galleries, a Georgetown-local art gallery that offers the most significant privately-held selection of works by modern and contemporary master artists, are elated to partner with one another. Through this culturally enriching new partnership, The Ritz-Carlton, Georgetown received their first art installation from DTR Modern Galleries in May 2017. Centered around a modern-Americana theme and valued at over $125,000, the leading art installation is indicative of US presidents (Abraham Lincoln, George Washington), key figures (Uncle Sam) and icons (The Capitol Building, Kennedy Half Dollar Coin, pop-art American flag) in U.S. history. All pieces are originals, signed by their respective artists, and are for sale directly through DTR Modern Galleries.
