Graceland Archives Exhibit Coming To D.C.

Opening March 12, 2010, at The Newseum in Washington D.C., experience the power of Elvis Presley and the explosive impact he had on music and popular culture in a new exhibit featuring stage costumes and other professional and personal mementos from the Graceland Archives. The exhibit tells the story of Elvis as he was portrayed in the news media and explores how his music and physicality pushed the boundaries of mainstream taste and free expression during a time when America was experiencing deep generational shifts. Produced in collaboration with Elvis Presley Enterprises, the exhibit includes some rare objects from the Graceland vaults that have never before been publicly displayed. See private telegrams, letters and scrapbooks that chronicle Elvis’ rise as a music and media sensation, as well as his death and his enduring legacy.

A more important question. Will Obama visit the exhibit?
