Join the Smithsonian American Art Museum & BYT for our last museum after hours of the year!
An American Myth and Memory After Hours!
Celebrate the last weekend of Summer with an exclusive, tourist-free, open-bar camp party in one of the most beautiful museum spaces in the city!
Our feel-good end-of-Summer Camp is inspired by American Myth & Memory: David Levinthal Photographs. Populated with toy cowboys and cavalry, Barbie dolls and baseball players, David Levinthal’s photographs reference iconic images and events that shaped postwar American society. Despite their playful veneer, Levinthal’s images provide a lens through which to examine the myths and stereotypes lurking within our most beloved pastimes and enduring heroes. In doing so, Levinthal encourages us to consider the stories we tell about ourselves—what it means to be strong, beautiful, masculine, feminine, and ultimately, American.
