I Do Solemnly Swear: Photographs of the 2009 Presidential Inauguration

April 29 through July 12, 2009

Images highlighting the weeklong events surrounding the historic Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama will go on view April 29 in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History’s new exhibition, “I Do Solemnly Swear: Photographs of the 2009 Presidential Inauguration.” More than 30 framed color and black-and-white photographs taken by 15 professional and amateur photographers and two photographic slide shows will be on exhibition through July 12.

Museum curators looked through more than 3,000 images to select the exhibition photographs and four murals that record the events surrounding the peaceful American transfer of power between administrations. The photographs on view include new acquisitions to the museum’s Photo History Collection by leading photojournalists, including David Hume Kennerly, the Ford White House photographer; Robert (Bob) McNeely, President Clinton’s official photographer; and Karen Ballard, a Washington, D.C.-based freelance photographer.
