More ways to celebrate the presidential inauguration – at the airport

DCA Exhibit

If you’re headed to Washington D.C. this weekend – or anytime between now and February 28, 2013, you can see an art exhibit commemorating the presidential inauguration at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

“Hail to the Chiefs: Portraits of United States Presidents and First Ladies,” was created by Morgan Monceaux, who used oil and acrylic paints, markers and recycled objects including campaign buttons, ribbons, jewelry and other materials to create portraits of George and Martha Washington, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, George H.W. and Barbara Bush, William and Hillary Clinton and many other U.S. Presidents and first ladies.

Below is Monceaux’s portrait of Abraham Lincoln – and here’s a link to information about this collection and the artist.
