Bravo! and Champions
July 1, 2006 – Indefinitely
8th & F Streets, NW
Location: 3rd Floor, South, Mezzanines
Two exhibitions feature particular themes in American life:
- BRAVO! showcases individuals who have brought the performing arts to life, beginning with P.T. Barnum, who raised the curtain on modern entertainment in the late 19th century and continuing to the present.
- Champions salutes the dynamic American sports figures whose impact has extended beyond the athletic realm and made them a part of the larger story of the nation. A lively combination of portraits, artifacts, memorabilia, and videos enhances both exhibitions.
