In the 1890s, illustrator Charles Dana Gibson created the "Gibson Girl," a vibrant, new feminine ideal—a young woman who pursued higher education, romance, marriage, physical well-being and individuality with unprecedented independence. A new exhibition on Gibson's work has opened at the Library and on its website.
The Library's public websites will be unavailable from 7 p.m. ET, Friday, Aug. 16 through Sunday, Aug. 18. Also, on Saturday, Aug. 17, all reading rooms and research areas in the Library of Congress will be closed to staff and the public all day.
This exhibition transports visitors to the momentous day of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, August 28, 1963—a day that transformed our nation—when 250,000 people from all walks of life participated in the largest non-violent demonstration for civil rights that Americans had ever witnessed.
