  • Overview

IA&A at Hillyer is a unique contemporary art venue located in the artistic and internationally chic Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington DC.

This renovated historic carriage house gallery hosts receptions, meetings and other social, corporate and non-profit events of up to 150 people standing or 75 people seated dining-style. The space features high ceilings, clean white walls and hardwood floors. The layout, a large main room and a smaller front room, allows for flexibility of use. The gallery presents a dual series of international and local contemporary art exhibitions providing an exceptional backdrop for events. The gallery is a perfect intimate venue for all kinds of parties and events. In the past Hillyer has hosted wedding receptions, birthday parties, corporate events, seminars, lectures, holiday office parties and non-profit fundraisers.

No matter your event, Hillyer can provide a great backdrop for your celebration or gathering. Surrounded by embassies and just steps away from the Phillips Collection, Cosmos Club, and numerous other art galleries, Hillyer is a prime location for local guests and visitors to the nation’s capital. The venue is easily accessible by public transportation from virtually anywhere in DC. The closest Metro, Dupont Circle, is less than two blocks away.

Hillyer is a convenient and colorful special events space and has gained recognition for its own well-publicized and well-attended exhibition openings and DC “happenings.”
