Smithsonian’s Picturing The Presidents Coming Soon From Infinity!
I just wanted to let you know about an interesting DVD that is coming soon (Feb. 10th) from Infinity Entertainment. With so much focus on presidential politics of late, this is a great time to have “Picturing The Presidents” coming to market. Here’s the whole story:
Title: Picturing The Presidents
Label: Smithsonian / Infinity
Hot debate is nothing new in the hallways of our national’s capital … but perhaps it’s a bit unexpected in a museum. On the other hand, the subjects in this exhibit are some of the most controversial and powerful people in the world. Some of them were great, some were not. All of them were important. American presidents shape the course of history, but their portraits shape the way they are remembered. Painstakingly coaxed from oil on canvas or captured through the lens of a camera, every portrait shapes a president’s legacy. Everyone expects a lot from a presidential portrait— the artist, the public and even the presidents themselves. And, as always, both the presidents and their portraits elicit strong and varied opinions. These historical portraits, housed at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., keep alive our memories of not only the U.S. presidents themselves but our idea of the American story. Join Smithsonian Channel in Picturing the Presidents and decide what you think is presidential and is image everything?
Picturing The Presidents is available on Amazon and most DVD retailer sites
