Historic Restoration for Arts-Focused Campus
Adjacent to Gallery 64 is the centerpiece of the Randall School redevelopment – the Rubell Museum DC, which opened to the public on October 29, 2022. The museum brings the Rubell Family’s extensive contemporary art collection to the nation’s capital. The 31,000-square-foot museum is housed in two of the three former historic Randall School buildings which have been restored and repositioned.
“We believe we have achieved our overarching objective for the redevelopment which is
to return the former school campus to public use that supports the immediate neighborhood and the greater Washington, DC community,” said Rivers.
Construction of the project began in November 2020 with Balfour Beatty Construction
serving as general contractor for Gallery 64 and The Christman Company as the general contractor for the historic school buildings. Beyer Blinder Belle Architects was the architect for both buildings with KTGY Simeone Deary Design Group collaborating on interior design.
