For more than 120 years, the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. has helped preserve depictions of the city’s built environment through paintings and photographs. The Historical Society aims to continue the tradition of capturing Washington’s built environment through the arts. For the Record is an annual juried exhibit of artworks that capture Washington’s changing urban landscape.

The Historical Society of Washington, D.C., challenges local artists to create 2D artwork depicting Washington’s changing built environment. For the Record provides exposure, recognition, and enduring prestige to local artists, and raises funds to support the Historical Society.

All works except those chosen by the Collections Committee can be yours through the For the Record online auction! The auction opens April 14, 2016 and you may bid online until the closing event on May 26, 2016.
