This accession consists of the records of Jewell Robinson, Public Program Coordinator, who was responsible for public programming at the National Portrait Gallery (NPG). Documented in this collection is the series entitled Cultures in Motion, which acquainted adult audiences with the NPG collection by bringing its sitters to life through professional actors appearing in one- and two-person shows, staged readings, and musical performances. Additional programs documented include Campus on the Mall programs, courtyard concerts, and Living Self-Portraits interviews. Campus on the Mall was run through the Smithsonian Associates and was a continuing education program that offered courses in the humanities, arts and sciences. NPG's Living Self-Portraits program is a series dedicated to capturing the personal narratives of influential figures in American history. Some materials date to when the office was known as the Department of Education and Office of Education. Materials include correspondence, memoranda, programs, contracts, scripts, images, contact sheets, audio recordings, publicity records, brochures, calendars, clippings, and other related records. Some materials are in electronic format.
