"Robert Kuhn, a recluse whose art is anything but reserved." 
Mark Jenkins, Washington Post, Dec 6, 2012. 


Born in Michigan in 1917, Kuhn attended the Art Institute of Chicago and was later hired by the Depression-era Works Progress Administration. He spent a few years in Mexico, where he learned to weld, before moving to Washington, DC in the 1950's. Although he supported himself as an artist for years, he grew disillisioned with galleries. He relocated in 1966 to a deconsecrated church in Tanners Ridge, VA. Kuhn was an artist of his times, and some of his role models are evident. We will see abstract works paying homage to Paul Klee in this exhibition.

Founded in 1922 in a townhouse at 1767 P Street, to promote and protect the interests of the residents, the Dupont Circle Citizens Association (DCCA) is the premier civic and residential organization in the Dupont Circle area.

DCCA brings neighbors, including residents, businesses and non-profit organizations, together to improve the quality of life in an active and diverse urban neighborhood. It holds membership meetings 9 times each year, which are open to the public, runs the Dupont Circle House Tour, resolves neighborhood issues through its committees, donates to local causes, and incubates innovative projects.
