Beautiful Blooms: Flowering Plants on Stamps

National Postal Museum
  Admission is always free

October 20, 2017 – July 14, 2019

This exhibition will highlight the variety of flowering plants commemorated on US postage stamps during the past 50 years and will explore artistic themes that emerged during this period. For example, the artwork will portray a variety of flowering plants found in gardens and public spaces throughout the United States and explore the symbiotic relationship between flowering plants, bees, birds and butterflies. The exhibit will display at least 30 pieces of developmental and final artwork used to produce at least 28 flora stamps. The use of stamp art in various phases of development will enable visitors to understand the role design artwork plays in the production of postage stamps. The artwork is borrowed from the renowned Postmaster General’s Art Collection which is on a long-term loan to the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum.

My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I

Address:
2 Massachusetts Avenue,North East
Washington, DC 20002

Cost: Free

From: National Postal Museum

Through personal correspondence written on the frontlines and home front, this centennial exhibition uncovers the history of America’s involvement in World War I. The compelling selection of letters illuminates emotions and thoughts engendered by the war that brought America onto the world stage; raised complex questions about gender, race and ethnic relations; and ushered in the modern era. Included are previously unpublished letters by General John Pershing, the general who led the American Expeditionary Forces and a person who understood the power of the medium. In his postwar letter that begins “My fellow soldiers,” he recognized each individual under his command for bravery and service. My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I was created by the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in collaboration with the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University. Open 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. daily.
