Human Smithsonian Sunburst

Description

Standing in the shape of the Smithsonian Institution sunburst, close to 4,000 Smithsonian staff, interns, fellows, and volunteers gathered on the National Mall in front of the Smithsonian Castle on Thursday, July 1, for this group portrait. This was the first-ever attempt to gather all employees and affiliated staff for a group shot in the Smithsonian’s 164-year history. This was the largest gathering of Smithsonian employees, fellows, interns, volunteers, and retirees to date. The photo was organized by the Smithsonian Community Committee and was taken during the Smithsonian Staff Picnic, held annually on the National Mall.
