Public Exhibitions Feature International Storylines and Destinations

Seems like everywhere you turn at the Elliott School, you’ll find a new photo exhibit highlighting its students, its significant areas of research, or partnerships with local embassies. Making use of the available community spaces in the building to showcase the wide-ranging blend of art and research through the prism of international affairs makes for an #onlyatGW experience. All exhibits are free and open to the public on weekdays 7am -10 pm.

    A bunch of the exhibits listed on are already closed. Is there an email notification list for future exhibits and receptions? I’d like to be on it if I can be.
