Frame an Iconic American: Who's in the lead?


Voting for our Frame an Iconic American contest opened May 11, 2012 and will run through May 26, 2012. Voting extended through May 28! Here's where the votes currently stand:

If you haven't yet voted, you can still help choose a historical figure whose biographical portrait will be composed by Robert Weingarten, a noted photographic artist. Read about Audie Murphy, Alice Paul, Celia Cruz, Samuel Morse, and Frederick Douglass and then vote for the figure you would like to see portrayed.

The finished portrait will be unveiled this fall and displayed at the Smithsonian.


See who won and what happens next.
