Peter Bohlin Elected as a 2014 National Academician
National Academicians are elected annually by their peers for their contribution to American art and architecture. Upon election, each Academician contributes a representative work known as a diploma presentation, which collectively forms the National Academy’s preeminent permanent collection of more than 7,000 artworks, architectural drawings, photographs and models from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.
Founded in 1825 by Samuel F. B. Morse, Thomas Cole and Asher B. Durand, among others, the National Academy is the only American institution of its kind that integrates a museum, art school and association of artists and architects — the National Academicians. The body of Academicians includes over 400 of today’s most recognized artists and architects.
