Love is in the air! With Valentine’s Day on the way, come on out to the National Portrait Gallery and check out the Pop Quiz trivia night on February 11 at 6:30 p.m.! Come test your knowledge on some of the most famous love stories of all time, told through the Portrait Gallery’s collection. Some had happy endings, like the romance of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, but others, like Bonnie and Clyde. . . . Well, we all know how that ended.
Pop Quiz takes place once a month in the Robert and Arlene Kogod Courtyard and can be played individually or in a team of up to six people. (You can earn a bonus point or two if you come up with a particularly clever team name.) The team with the highest score will take home a special prize, along with bragging rights. The Courtyard Café will be open during the Pop Quiz for participants to purchase snacks and drinks.
Get a head start by taking a look at this month’s bonus question, worth ten points.
