Looking for an antidote to modern culture’s emphasis on romantic love? Perhaps we can learn from the diverse forms of emotional attachment prized by the ancient Greeks.
Throughout history people have expressed notions of love in many different ways. Here’s a selection of representations of love in the Museum’s collection.
*****PICK UP THE WASHINGTON POST ON FRIDAY!!!*****
Join artists Shepard Fairey, Jessica Sabogal, and Ernesto Yerena as we disrupt the rising tide of hate and fear in America.
WE BELIEVE ART HAS THE POWER TO WAKE PEOPLE UP.
Eight years ago, the artist Shepard Fairey made the iconic image that captured a period of HOPE in America. Today we are in a very different moment, one that requires new images that reject the hate, fear, and open racism that were normalized during the 2016 presidential campaign. So on Inauguration Day, We the People will flood Washington, DC with NEW symbols of hope.
