Join Us for an Inspirational Evening

The Portrait of a Nation Gala welcomes distinguished guests from across the country for a glamorous and uplifting night celebrating notable individuals who have championed transformational impact and change for our country and its people.

Attendees celebrate renowned honorees in the museum’s Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard, beneath a glittering glass canopy designed by acclaimed architects Foster + Partners that beautifully complements the stately Greek Revival style of the National Historic Landmark building that encapsulates it.

The biennial Portrait of a Nation Gala seeks to raise $3 million to strengthen the museum’s nascent endowment, which directly supports its greatest institutional priorities including compelling exhibitions which aim to tell the dynamic and multifaceted story of the United States of America.

Portrait of a Nation Award

The Portrait of a Nation Award is awarded to individuals selected from the illustrious roster of contemporary Americans whose portraits reside in the National Portrait Gallery’s collection. Recipients have made significant contributions across diverse fields and have demonstrated a significant commitment to service, and the values of creativity, individuality, insight, and inquiry.
