|2018 - First Ladies: Style of Influence||
Bush Center, Andrew Kaufmann:
|In addition to rare photographs and historic documents, artifacts on display will include a black evening gown worn by Eleanor Roosevelt, a snuff box owned by Dolley Madison, and Lou Hoover’s original Girl Scout uniform and Cine-Kodak movie camera. As the personal stories of the first ladies unfold, visitors learn the challenges and rewards of a position that is reimagined by each person who holds it.|
|2017 - Holiday Exhibit||
In 2005, President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush chose the theme, All Things Bright and Beautiful, to highlight the beauty found in nature. Inspired by a 19th-century English hymn that became the title of Yorkshire veterinarian James Herriot's beloved book, Mrs. Bush said at the time that the line inspired the use of fresh flowers, fruits, and plants to show "how beautiful nature is and how many things we can use from our own gardens or woods" for Christmas decorations.
|2017 - Portraits of Courage||
This exhibit brought together 66 full-color portraits and a four-panel mural painted by President Bush of members of the United States military who have served our nation with honor since 9/11 — and whom he has come to know personally.
