FILE - This May 15, 2014 file photo shows pedestrians passing the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington. The District of Columbia has filed court documents in support of allowing the Corcoran Gallery of Art and its college to merge with two larger institutions. D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan filed comments this week supporting the museum's merger with George Washington University and the National Gallery of Art. The attorney general is charged with representing the public interest when a court considers major changes to a charity's structure. (AP Photo/Kevin Wolf, File)
