Marian Anderson on the World Stage
On exhibit beginning August 25, 2016

Marian Anderson (1897-1993) was an American singer, Philadelphia born, and while her most famous performances took place in the United States—notably, her 1939 open-air concert in Washington, D.C., on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial—she performed in nearly two dozen countries across the globe. She enjoyed world travel and found some of her most appreciative audiences outside the United States. This exhibit presents photographs and memorabilia documenting her travels abroad, which spanned nearly thirty-five years of her long career.
Happy Birthday, Marian Anderson!
