On Tuesday, July 1 a group of interns and fellows from various units across the Smithsonian had the pleasure participating in a guided tour of the American Cool exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery (NPG). Within the exhibit are 100 photographs of pop-culture icons ranging from the 20th century until now.  Billie Holliday, Faye Dunway, and Jay-Z were among those featured.
