What: The Smithsonian Institution presents Elvis at 21, an exhibition featuring 56 photographs chronicling Elvis’s dazzling emergence in 1956. Accompanying Elvis on the road, in concert, recording, and at home, Alfred Wertheimer documented Presley’s meteoric rise in the year he catapulted from anonymity to superstardom. The photographs—including 40 large format (37”x42”) pigment prints—radiate a richness and depth that make Elvis’ road to fame palpable. With cinematic luminosity, the Wertheimer photographs document a remarkable time when Elvis could sit alone at a drugstore lunch counter. Elvis at 21 was developed collaboratively by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and Govinda Gallery, and is sponsored nationally by HISTORY™.
