Yousuf Karsh: American Portraits Exhibition Opening Reception

February 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

$5. – $10

Yousuf Karsh believed that “the heart and the mind are the true lens of the camera,” and he developed a genuine rapport with his subjects to fashion evocative and revealing portraits. This collection, on loan from the National Portrait Gallery, features the work of the celebrated photographer throughout a storied career that spanned more than six decades.

Displaying portraits of Americans who have distinguished themselves in fields as diverse as business, medicine, entertainment, politics and the arts, the exhibition includes portraits of Georgia O’Keeffe, Jonas Salk, Marian Anderson, Elizabeth Arden, I.M. Pei, Helen Keller, Andy Warhol, Muhammad Ali, and first ladies Eleanor Roosevelt and Jacqueline Kennedy.

This exhibition will be on view February 8 through May 5, 2019.

This exhibition has been organized by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C. This exhibition is made possible in part by CreAgent Marketing.
