National Academicians are central to the Academy’s core mission of promoting art and architecture in America. Each Academician contributes a representative work–the diploma presentation–upon election. These works from Academicians, spanning the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries, form the Academy’s ever-evolving permanent collection of over 7,000 paintings, sculptures and drawings, as well as architectural drawings, photographs and models.
