PRESS RELEASE

On Saturday, August 9, 2014 the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum will open a new special exhibition: Read My Pins: The Madeleine Albright Collection in the William J. vanden Heuvel Special Exhibits Gallery.

Organized by the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, this unique traveling exhibition features more than 200 pins, many of which the incomparable Secretary Albright donned to communicate a message or a mood during her diplomatic tenure. Sparkling with Albright’s wit and brio, the collection is notable for its historic significance as well as for demonstrating the expressive power of jewelry and its ability to communicate through a style and language all its own.

The exhibition will close on Sunday, November 2, 2014.
