Revel in the solstice and reflect on American unity at this year’s America Now, where three of your favorite museums UNITE for a night of art, music, and a festival of Americana. Enjoy the extra hours of daylight at a mid-summer moveable feast celebrating the best of art and history in DC.

Gather at the National Museum of American History for happy hour before continuing the night at the Smithsonian American Art Museum Block Party. A live concert at the National Portrait Gallery closes out the night.

America Now is a three-museum collaboration between the National Portrait Gallery, the National Museum of American History and the Smithsonian American Art Museum and is made possible by the generous support of the Robert and Arlene Kogod Family Foundation.

Free and open to the public.
