Christmas on the PotomacThomas Cooper Library East Gallery
Dec 1, 2009 - Jan 15, 2010
The exhibit will chiefly feature cards received by Congressman Joe Wilson in 2008 from other members of Congress, foreign dignitaries, and businesses and organizations within and outside his district. Of particular note are calendar cards sent by the Wilson’s in 2003, 2007, 2008 and 2009. Included are the Wilsons' card from 2003, his first year in Congress, a striking card from the Ambassador of Japan, a card from the National Education Association featuring the Cat in the Hat, and Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez’s annual production featuring her cat Gretzky. The exhibit will also include President and Mrs. Pastides’ 2008 card and, hopefully, one or two surprises.
