The Many Faces of George Washington, a national traveling exhibition that examines the multi-dimensional, real-life man behind the myth, opens to the public at the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution headquarters on November 12. It will be on display to groups and the general public free of charge through December 16 (except on holidays) at its headquarters at 1000 South 4th Street, Louisville, Ky.
Produced by George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon (www.mountvernon.org), in conjunction with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History (www.gilderlehrman.org), this exhibition presents the many different facets of Washington’s leadership through dazzling color graphics of paintings, photographs and iconic objects from the Mount Vernon collections.
The Many Faces of George Washington looks at Washington’s leadership in the exhibition’s seven sections: Virginia Childhood, Risk Taker, Realistic Visionary, Wise Decision Maker, Impassioned Learner, Visionary Entrepreneur and At Home at Mount Vernon. The exhibition has been made possible by a generous grant from the F.M. Kirby Foundation.
