We are thrilled to offer our educational exhibit Banner Moments: The National Anthem in American Life free of charge to libraries, museums, schools, and colleges. The exhibit explores the history of the United States’ National Anthem in 16 poster-sized historical panels and accompanying illustrations. A selection of these panels is available to preview online in our Banner Moments Blog.

Hosting institutions will be given access to online file folders with all images, multi-media files, and publicity templates plus a gallery set-up guide. Image files can be printed in any size and arranged to fit any exhibit space.

Poster templates are also available and we encourage exhibitors to customize the exhibit by adding panels to feature local community connections. Gerald R. Ford, for example, was president during the 1976 American bicentennial, so panels and imagery describing the role President Ford played in celebrating and extending American identity will be featured in the 2017 exhibit at the Gerald R. Ford Library and Museum, which likewise celebrates the nation’s 240th birthday!
