Here’s a behind-the-scenes peak at the what our Exhibits staff are working on!

Bad fashion, odd fads, and disco dance music sum up the 1970s for many Americans. But “Searching for the Seventies: The DOCUMERICA Photography Project” takes a new look at the decade’s trends, fashions, and cultural shifts through color photographs taken for Project DOCUMERICA, a Federal photography project.

The exhibit opens March 8 and runs through September 8, 2013, at the National Archives in Washington, DC. Admission is free!
