A Portrait Is Worth 1,000 Words

See what stories the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery will tell and join us for a fantastic night of fun, food, and networking on Wednesday, September 27, from 7:00 – 10:00 pm. Through the visual arts, performing arts, and new media, the Portrait Gallery presents poets and presidents, visionaries and villains, actors and activists whose lives form our national identity.

You’ll have full museum access (with the exception of the first floor Kinship exhibit), including the complete collection of presidential portraits as well as works from artists who have shaped the ever-evolving story of America. You can view the museum map here.

As you prepare to journey with us through art and history, here are some details to keep in mind:

  • Party Location: The Portrait Gallery is located at 8th St NW & G St NW, a short walk from the convention center. If you need a walking group back to the hotels at night, meet at the exit at the top of the hour and half-hour.
  • Security Screening: Please be aware that all visitors will be required to pass through security screening at the museum’s entrances. Those who are unable to go through the metal detector will be hand-screened with an electronic wand by security personnel. Suitcases, large umbrellas, and large backpacks are not allowed in the galleries, but we’ll have a coat/bag check available in the G Street lobby. Smaller backpacks will need to be hand carried or worn on the front of your body.
  • Don’t Forget Your Badge: Your conference badge is your ticket to the party!

We’re grateful to WordPress VIP for making this event possible, from fine art to fine dining. Speaking of food, you can preview the party menu here.

With only a few days before the CMWorld community comes together, we hope you’re excited to experience the connection that awaits you at this year’s CMI celebration. See you soon!
