The Many Faces of George Washington exhibit provides background and insight into our nation’s first president, a man whom many recognize but few know much about. Spanning Washington’s entire life, the exhibit focuses on the traits that made him a beloved leader and the choices that helped establish a stable democratic government. The exhibit 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.
Using interpretive and educational materials, the exhibit 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.
