As bulletin boards get refreshed and schools are squeaky cleaned, why not redecorate your main entrance or library? We can help! Mount Vernon is pleased to be distributing beautiful oil portraits of George Washington by Rembrandt Peale, accompanied by our Celebration Kit featuring a flag flown over Mount Vernon and teaching resources, for FREE to any school that would like one. Just have your principal send us a request on letterhead with the school’s street address, where the painting will hang, and a contact email address. What a fabulous way to start the school year! Check out our Portrait Map on the right hand side of this page to see other schools that have already received their portraits. And yes, that is former First Lady Laura Bush presenting the very first portrait in the picture above.
