Museum: Portrait Gallery

Location: 1st Floor, southeast

Based on works drawn from the National Portrait Gallery's permanent collection -- this rotating exhibition features individuals prominent in sports, entertainment, and other fields of endeavor in the last 25 years. Examples include larger-than-life photographs of athletes Lance Armstrong and Andre Agassi by Martin Schoeller, the recently commissioned portrait og Senator Hilary Rodham Clinton by Ginny Stanford, and John Kascht's watercolor caricatures of David Letterman, Larry King, and Whoopi Goldberg. These items were on view through April 23, 2007: A hand-stenciled quilt by Faith Ringgold and a larger-than-life Polaroid photograph of composer Philip Glass by Chuck Close.
