Portrait of Stephen Colbert
When: through April 20, 2015
Attention members of Colbert nation: Stephen is back at the Portrait Gallery! His new and improved portrait (now with even more Stephens!) is hung over the water fountain between the men's and women's restrooms on the 2nd floor - just outside the Hall of Presidents.
I love that the Smithsonian has gone along with the joke; most of the time, they're a serious institution providing world-class art and historical objects at no charge to the visitor, but every so often, they show they have a sense of humor.
Verdict: If you like Colbert, make sure you stop by to say farewell to his blowhard persona.
