The left sleeve of this Men’s “Raise It Up!” T-Shirt features a current American flag. The right sleeve, “National Museum of American History.” 100% cotton. Machine wash. Tumble dry. Made in the U.S.A. Sizes S, M, L, XL, XXL.
Throughout 2014, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History will celebrate our nation’s most iconic emblem, the Star-Spangled Banner. Displayed for nearly 50 years in the Smithsonian’s Art and Industries Building, the flag was transferred in 1964 to our National Museum of American History. Since the completion of the flag’s most recent conservation, it has been continuously displayed in a special, environmentally-controlled chamber on the museum’s second floor. For six short weeks this summer, the Star-Spangled Banner will be accompanied by the original manuscript of our National Anthem for which this flag was the inspiration.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
