The National Portrait Gallery is proud to call the District of Columbia home, and equally proud of the great collection of portraits we have of DC residents past and present.
On May 29, you can test your knowledge of famous locals at the museum’s monthly collections-based trivia game, Pop Quiz! This month’s Pop Quiz theme is “Hometown Heroes,” featuring questions about the sitters in our collection who have called DC home.
Pop Quiz can be played individually or in teams of up to 6 people. Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. The Courtyard Café will be open, and snacks and beverages will be available for purchase. Below is a sneak peek at the 10-point bonus question for this month’s Pop Quiz trivia:
Michael Jordan is the winner of numerous NBA awards, a two-time Olympic gold-medalist, Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, and even, briefly, a minor-league baseball player. In 2001 Jordan came out of retirement to play two seasons for the Washington Wizards. What number did Jordan wear while playing for Wizards?
Pop Quiz trivia occurs once a month in the Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard in the National Portrait Gallery.
