Portraits by the People

Since its founding in 1967, the Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum has been powered by the people and stories of the Washington, D.C. region. In celebration of the Museum’s 55th anniversary, ACM is asking residents of the D.C. region to submit portraits of themselves as the Museum looks to its next 55 years and beyond! Running from June 13 - September 15, 2022 ‘Portraits by the People’ continues the museum’s tradition of preserving and celebrating the local stories which make up our diverse neighborhoods.

Select images from ‘Portraits by the People’ will be showcased as projections on the side of the Museum’s building the evening of September 15, as well as on the Museum’s social media platforms throughout the summer of 2022.
