Unlike any other portraits of this endlessly scrutinized figure, Alfred Wertheimer’s photographs captured 21-year-old Elvis Presley on the threshold of super stardom. Chronicling Elvis’ dazzling emergence in a pivotal year, 1956, they radiate a richness and depth that make his road to fame palpable. With cinematic luminosity, the Wertheimer photographs document a remarkable time when Elvis could sit alone at a drugstore lunch counter. The exhibition is developed collaboratively by the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and Govinda Gallery, and is sponsored nationally by HISTORY™. Reception: Friday, March 8, 5 – 7:30 pm(Please note: The gallery is closed March 28 – April 1 for Easter.)
