About

America Now is a three-museum collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery, National Museum of American History, and Smithsonian American Art Museum. America Now seeks to show the connectivity between the museums, and highlight the depth and breadth of America’s history, art and culture. It is made possible by the generous support of the Robert and Arlene Kogod Family Foundation. The Washington Post is the media sponsor for this year’s America Now.

In 2017 America Now will focus on the centenary of President John F. Kennedy, a leader whose legacy has had far reaching effects on policy, culture and history.
