Bravo! and Champions

Bravo! and Champions

July 1, 2006 – Indefinitely

Museum: Portrait Gallery

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 showcases American sports figures whose impact has extended beyond the ring, the court, and the field to become a part of the larger story of the life and culture of our nation.

Note: A lively combination of portraits, artifacts, memorabilia, and videos enhances both exhibitions.
