PUSHING BOUNDARIES:
PORTRAITS BY ROBERT WEINGARTEN

July 2 to October 14, 2012

"The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History will feature an
exhibition of sixteen large scale (60 X 90 inch) photographs from
Weingarten's series, Portraits Unbound at the International Gallery on the
National Mall. By offering a close examination of his photographs of
important cultural figures  and a selection of historic portraits from the
Photographic History Collection, this exhibition explores questions prompted
by Weingarten¹s work, “What is a portrait?” and  “What makes you who are?”.
This dynamic exhibition provides visitors with an opportunity to contemplate
the lives of his iconic sitters and Weingarten's rich visual legacy." - by Shannon T. Perich, Associate Curator, Photographic History Collection, Smithsonian Institution
