“The Boomer List” opens this Friday! Frank and Sonya sit down with Patty Rhule, senior manager for exhibit development, to talk about the Newseum exhibit, which is a unique opportunity to look at this influential generation and the news and events that shaped their experience. The exhibit features photographic portraits by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders of 19 influential baby boomers, the boomers’ stories in their own words, and numerous artifacts representing the era, including historic newspapers, magazines, and pop culture objects like original Barbie and GI Joe dolls.
The exhibit, created in partnership with AARP, is on display exclusively at the Newseum through July 5, 2015. The American Masters documentary, “The Boomer List,” premieres on PBS Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. (check local listings).
