Courtesy of C-SPAN and the White House Historical Association, the touring exhibition American Presidents: Life Portraits, a mini-walk through presidential history created by C-SPAN as an accompaniment to its biographical television series of the same name, will make a stopover in Denver just in time to help us all ponder who should be next. Centered on a collection of presidential oil portraits by artist Chas Fagan, from Georges Washington to W. Bush, the exhibit is filled out with biographical sketches, photographs and, perhaps best of all, historical newspaper front pages proclaiming presidential election results through the years.
Find the show in Schlessman Hall on the first floor of the Denver Central Library, 10 West 14th Avenue Parkway; by the time it ends, on August 14, we should all be ready for a full helping of convention-week politico-mania. For details, go to www.denverlibrary.org or call 720-865-1111.
