Honorary co-chairs Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and Michael Mathis, President & COO of MGM Springfield Casino Resort Hotel invite you to celebrate Pop! An Iconic Evening. Join honored guests from the Smithsonian Institution and view national treasures from the Smithsonian at the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts, then stroll across the Quadrangle to enjoy dinner at the Wood Museum of Springfield History.
The special exhibit Pop! Icons of American Culture from the Smithsonian will include a variety of artifacts on loan from the extensive collections of the National Museum of American History, National Portrait Gallery, National Air and Space Museum, and National Museum of African American History and Culture. The Superman and Lois Lane costumes worn by Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder take center stage in this exhibition. These pieces will be in good company alongside Marilyn Monroe’s fashionable white gloves, a soccer jersey worn by Mia Hamm at the 1996 Summer Olympics, Eddie Van Halen’s guitar, Julius Erving’s sneakers, the Star Trek tribbles and an original drawing of the Peanuts cartoon by Charles Schulz.
