June events at the Clinton Presidential Center

The Clinton Center's newest temporary exhibit, "Oscar de la Renta: American Icon," tells the story of the designer’s life, career, and impact on the fashion world through his original designs and will feature more than 30 of his iconic creations. In December 1998, then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton graced the cover of Vogue, the first time in history the magazine featured a sitting First Lady on its cover. “Oscar de la Renta is the ultimate statesman of American fashion," she said in her interview. "His name alone evokes shimmering elegance and timeless beauty that has helped define global style for generations. He is a true American original.” Also in June, the Center opens a very special temporary exhibit honoring the Father of our Country, "A Tribute to George Washington." This exhibit will include original historical documents and a priceless portrait of the first president of the United States. Super Summer Saturdays offer free activities for the entire family. All this and more! Click here for a complete listing of events.
