PUBLIC FIGURES, PRIVATE LIVES"
From May 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013—while
our permanent exhibit galleries are closed for the final stage of the
Library’s renovation—the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and
Museum is presenting the largest photography exhibition ever assembled
on the lives and public careers of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. "The
Roosevelts: Public Figures, Private Lives," is a new and very different
kind of exhibit that takes visitors on an immersive photographic and
film journey through the lives and times of the Roosevelts. The
exhibition features nearly one thousand images that vividly depict both
their public and private lives.
These photographs include famous and
familiar images, many reproduced in dramatically large formats. But the
exhibit also presents visitors with new visual perspectives on the
Roosevelts through large numbers of unique and rarely-seen personal
photographs from the unparalleled photographic collections at the
Roosevelt Library. Shot by family members, friends, government
officials, and other insiders, these images offer fascinating views into
the private lives of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt and their family
and political associates. These include childhood images, candid
snapshots of family life and trips, humorous moments, behind-the-scenes
views of famous figures, and unusual perspectives on historic meetings
Special audiovisual programs accompany the
photographs and include projections of little-known film shot by
Roosevelt family and friends that depict their more unscripted moments.
The highlight of the exhibit is a multimedia presentation featuring
original audio recordings of Eleanor Roosevelt speaking about her family
