1916 was the year that National Park Service was created and the Boy Scouts of America were incorporated. It was also the year that legendary actor Gregory Peck was born. In honor of the 100th anniversary of his birth, the Portrait Gallery will honor his life and legacy with his portrait by Everett Raymond Kinstler on our “Celebrate” wall. Be sure to stop in and see him from April 1 through April 10.
The museum will also observe the occasion with a double feature of Peck films— To Kill a Mockingbird and A Conversation with Gregory Peck—on Sunday, April 3. The screening will be followed by a discussion of the latter film by its producers, Barbara Kopple and Linda Saffire, and Cecilia Peck, the legendary actor’s daughter.
