Fifty-four stamp reproductions illuminate this building’s historic façade and the interior of the William H. Gross Stamp Gallery.  Each panel tells an important story of American history, culture, and identity. Curators chose these images from more than 4,000 U.S. stamps issued since 1847. The translucent panels are both aesthetic and practical. They create a stunning visual effect while also protecting the museum’s collection from light, heat, humidity, and theft.
