Gene Davis was commissioned to create this 15th anniversary work of art for the Smithsonian's Resident Associate Program as well serigraphs for the 10th and 20th anniversaries. All of these works displays his trademark style of edge-to-edge vertical stripes in dazzling colors.

Gene Davis (Washington, D.C., 1920 - 1985) was a self-taught artist and founding member of the Washington Color School. He taught at the Corcoran School of Art and American University and was an artist-in-residence at Skidmore College. He had over 100 one-man shows and while he worked in many styles and media, including collage and photography, his multi-color vertical stripe paintings continue to be the most sought after. His work is in museum collections around the world, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Tate Gallery, Guggenheim Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
