As 2017 comes to a close, we're toasting our stand-out year at the Portrait Gallery. From stunning exhibitions to meaningful programs, the museum had a lot to celebrate this year. A major standout was the second American Portrait Gala, where we were thrilled to honor five outstanding luminaries for their contributions to American arts and culture. Check out highlights of the evening in the above video.
As we move into 2018, the Portrait Gallery's 50th anniversary year, we look forward to continuing our mission of telling the story of America through the individuals who have shaped it. Thank you for continued support, and we hope to see you in the new year!
