    Soldier, statesman, patriot, planter, slaveholder: George Washington's legend has evolved with time. This traveling panel exhibition reveals the complex man behind the myth.

    “The Many Faces of George Washington” looks at Washington’s leadership in the exhibition’s seven sections: Virginia Childhood, Risk Taker, Realistic Visionary, Wise Decision Maker, Impassioned Learner, Visionary Entrepreneur, and At Home at Mount Vernon. Produced by George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon, in conjunction with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, this exhibition presents the many different facets of Washington’s leadership through dazzling color graphics of paintings, photographs, and iconic objects from the Mount Vernon collections.

    At Homewood, exhibition materials are supplemented by objects drawn from Johns Hopkins University collections and regional history museums. The unique amalgam of objects furthers the ongoing public conversation about the promise and paradox of Washington, who is as celebrated for his leadership today as he was upon his death 220 years ago.
