    Spotlight: Rotunda Exhibit

    While the Rotunda undergoes a comprehensive, critically-needed renovation, artifacts typically on view there are on temporary display in the South Gallery of the Mary and David Harrison Institute for American History, Literature, and Culture. Items on display include the bell from the Rotunda, busts of Thomas Jefferson and the Marquis de Lafayette, and Alexander Galt's statue of Jefferson.
