Our Mission

Abraham Lincoln by Daniel Chester FrenchPresident Washington and Major L’Enfant envisioned a new capital where our nation’s noblest aspirations would find expression in classical architecture, painting, sculpture, and urban planning.

The National Civic Art Society is dedicated to the perpetuation of that vision in the city they created: Washington, D.C., every American’s second home town. Through exhibitions and other programs for the edification of artists, educators, policy makers, and the general public, the Society will both promote the collaboration of classical sculptors, painters, and architects and encourage patronage by the Federal government conducive to such collaboration. The Society will thereby lay the foundation for more beautiful and meaningful monuments, memorials, civic buildings, and public spaces, both in the nation’s capital and in the nation at large.
