Our strength is in our people.  The students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the George Washington University are all part of our family of supporters.  From our supporters, the Friends of the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery, to our student interns, who have gone on to careers in the arts and beyond, there are many ways to become a part of the gallery.
