The Peabody Room's Collection of Georgetown Art

While the Peabody Room is not home to a real dog, it has one that has been rendered in oil paint. "Mrs.Joy Blair and Valentine" was painted in 2012 by Nicole Bourgea and donated to the Peabody Room's Georgetownian Art Collection by Mrs. Blair, a Georgetown resident of 60+ years.
