Art and Landscape at Glenstone

By Linda Tancs

Art and nature merge seamlessly at Glenstone, an indoor-outdoor museum in Potomac, Maryland. Its name is derived from Glen Road (where the property line begins) and a nod to stone indigenous to the area. A short drive from Washington, D.C., the facility showcases a vast and deep collection of modern and contemporary art owned by its founders, Mitch and Emily Rales. That array is complemented by lush grounds and an outdoor sculpture collection amidst nearly 300 acres. The landscape features trails, streams, meadows, forests and several distinct aquatic ecosystems. Admission is free.
