Michelle Obama featured in new exhibit at National Portrait Gallery
WASHINGTON (AP) - Move over Martha Washington. Martha Stewart and Michelle Obama are getting space in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington for the first time.
A new exhibit, "Americans Now," opened Friday, featuring famous names from science, business, government and the arts.
President Barack Obama and the first lady are among those portrayed. It's the first time Michelle Obama's individual portrait has been shown at the gallery.
Familiar names in the collection also include Tom Hanks, Willie Nelson and LL Cool J. Video portraits in the exhibit feature late night comedians Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien and David Letterman, as well as George Clooney and LeBron James.
Museum Director Martin Sullivan says the portraits show the national impact of these individuals. They are on view through July 2011.
