President Obama will speak to the visitors of the Booth Western Art Museum Friday – through a letter. In honor of President’s Day the following Monday, the museum will add a one-page signed letter from the president to the Carolyn & James Millar Presidential Gallery. The unveiling will be held at 11 a.m. in the gallery and is open to the public.
Booth’s Presidential Gallery is a room steeped with history. The gallery features an original one-page signed letter from each U.S. president, accompanied by a portrait. These displays are accompanied by details of each presidency, which helps put the letters into context for visitors. Shortly after President Obama was inaugurated in 2009, Booth Museum began working to obtain a letter from him. That letter, written on official White House stationary is addressed to the visitors of Booth Museum. The letter commends museums around the country for their preservation efforts of historical items significant to the history of the United States.
If you visit the Presidential Gallery, be sure to also see the other treasures housed at Booth – particularly the Ansel Adams installation, which has been extended through March 13.
