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 Smithsonian marks the first Saturday of summer—Solstice Saturday—by staying open late and hosting parties, programs, and performances. Most Smithsonian museums will be open until midnight welcoming visitors to the free festivities. A complete list of Solstice Saturday events and programming can be found at si.edu/solsticesaturday.
