Related Organization: Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum
The Harry S. Truman Presidential Library & Museum will host "Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors," a special exhibit from the George W. Bush Presidential Center, Oct. 13 to Dec. 31. The exhibition is supported by the Truman Library Institute, the Truman Presidential Library’s non-profit partner. Growing out of President George W. Bush’s personal commitment and the George W. Bush Institute’s ongoing Veterans and Military Families work, Portraits of Courage brings together 66 full-color portraits and a four-panel mural painted by President Bush of 98 service members and veterans who have served our nation with honor since 9/11, and whom the President has come to know personally since leaving office. The Truman Presidential Library is one of just four venues nationwide selected to host the paintings this year. Portraits of Courage will be on display in the museum’s newly renovated temporary exhibit galleries.
Located at 500 West U.S. Highway 24 in Independence, the Truman Library is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from Noon to 5p.m. For this special exhibition, free tickets for U.S. veterans and Active Military are available onsite at Visitor Services. Please provide proof of military service for complimentary admission.
