July 1, 2006 – Permanent

Museum: Portrait Gallery

Location: 3rd Floor, South

Four galleries showcase the major cultural and political hallmarks of the 20th century. Paintings, sculpture, photographs, and prints portray those who were at the center of these moments. People from a range of backgrounds—Jane Addams, Douglas MacArthur, Robert F. Kennedy, Sandra Day O'Connor, Michael Jackson, Denyce Graves, Marilyn Monroe, Jim Henson, among others—tell the story of America's 20th century and beyond.
