WASHINGTON, D.C. --  District of Columbia Attorney General Irvin B. Nathan commended D.C. Superior Court Judge Robert D. Okun for his opinion issued today that allows the trustees of the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the Corcoran College of Art + Design to implement agreements reached with the National Gallery of Art and The George Washington University concerning the institution’s assets and operations.

“We appreciate Judge Okun's thoughtful, thorough, and very timely decision, which allows the Corcoran College of Art + Design to begin the new school year with a secure future,” Nathan said. “We hope all the parties will accept his decision as the final resolution of a difficult case and will work together towards our shared goal of strengthening and preserving the College, the Gallery, and the iconic building that houses them, and keeping these important pieces of art in the District of Columbia to the maximum extent possible."
