On loan from the Virginia Museum of History & Culture, Washington: The Myths and the Man, coming to William King Museum of Art October 6, 2022 – January 29, 2023, will explore who George Washington was behind the screen of his renown. “Lighthorse Harry” Lee eulogized that Washington was “first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen. . . . The purity of his private character gave effulgence to his public virtues.” This exhibition, featuring 13 original paintings by Ferris along with 17 historical records, focuses on Washington’s private life at Mount Vernon and reveals what motivated him to become a public servant.

Join curator Emily Jordan on January 29, 2023 at 2:00PM for Tours at Two – a FREE guided tour of Washington: The Myths and the Man.
