Hidden Gem – Meridian International Center


The Meridian International Center is located at 1630 Crescent Place, NW just off 16th Street near Meridian Hill Park. If you weren’t looking for it you’d never find it. But you’ll be happy if you do. Currently they have an exhibit titled “Painting the Heart of Russia – The Timkov Collection”. Their Web site says:

“Opened on November 14, 2008, and on display until March 8, 2009, Meridian International Center presents selections from “The Timkov Collection”, provided by Timothy and Lisa Wyman, featuring remarkable landscapes by renowned Russian painter Nikolai Efimovich Timkov (1912-1993). Dr. Alison Hilton, an eminent scholar of Russian art history and Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at Georgetown University, will serve as co-curator of the exhibition.

“The greatest Russian Impressionist landscape painter of the second and third quarters of the 20th century.”

Dr. Albert Kostenevich
