The Many Faces of George Washington

This exhibition provides background and insight into our nation’s first president, a man whom many recognize but few know much about. Using interpretive and educational materials, the exhibition examines the multi-dimensional, real-life man behind the myth. Produced by George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon, in conjunction with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, 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.
