After Five Celebrations
Join the National Portrait Gallery in a celebration of life, memory, identity, and culture. This year's outdoor program invites visitors to remember loved ones and victims of COVID-19.  

A special video and sound installation by D.C.-area artist MasPaz offers messages of resilience and reflection for the Latinx community and other communities that have been affected by this pandemic. Visitors may contribute their own memories – in the form of artwork, photos, or other items – to an altar on the museum's steps.

Altars will be up from 2:00- 8:00pm. The video and sound installation will be up from 6:30- 8:30pm.  

Please note:
Masks and social distancing are required.
This event will be photographed and recorded.
