Founded in 1825, the National Academy (www.nationalacademy.org) is the only institution of its kind that integrates a museum, art school, and association of artists and architects dedicated to creating and preserving a living history of American art and architecture. Modeled after the Royal Academy of Arts in London, the National Academy was established for the purpose of education and exhibition, and is committed to the promotion of American art and architecture. The Academy's collection of over 7,000 nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first century works form a unique survey of American art and architecture. The National Academy is located on prestigious Museum Mile in the Carnegie Hill district.
