Carmen Lomas Garza's art documents the lives of Mexican Americans and often portray memories of her family in South Texas. In "Camas para Sueños" (1985) in our @americanart, she sits on the roof with her sister: https://t.co/ENGX3zbO02 #BecauseOfHerStory #HispanicHeritageMonth

When the first hijacked plane crashed into the World Trade Center on 9/11, the New York Fire Department responded immediately. This door—from one of the FDNY trucks destroyed in the collapse of the towers—belonged to Squad One of Brooklyn, which lost 12 members in the attacks.

It's not the heat, it's the humidity inside Hans Haacke's "Condensation Cube" in our @hirshhorn. Conservators explain how they take care of this conceptual, damp piece differently than a painting, and answer if that's really water inside (spoiler: yes). https://t.co/ToTOzLcCfX

Self-taught artist Grandma Moses was born today in 1860. She depicts herself—at age 80—about to leave on her first trip to see her paintings on view in New York City in "Grandma Moses Goes to the Big City" (1946), from our @americanart's collection. https://t.co/8sL0T4x8lN

If you don't have your own pup to hug, you can borrow this one. Christina Malman's “Woman and a Dog" was published in a 1935 issue of The New Yorker, and is now in our @cooperhewitt’s collection. https://t.co/QTOUEGGyrS

Smithsonian Folkways
Today we're celebrating the @Smithsonian's 175th birthday! ‘Folkways: The Original Vision’ is the milestone 1989 recording of classic roots music that helped launch Smithsonian Folkways. It was the first release by Folkways Records as its new label name! #Smithsonian175

Happy 175th birthday, @smithsonian! SERC was born in 1965, after an eccentric millionaire willed his dairy farm to the Smithsonian. Our "baby" pic shows the abandoned farm buildings that would become our first labs. Not enough to scare away field ecologists! #Smithsonian175

Happy 175th birthday @Smithsonian! We're sharing this throwback "baby pic" of SITES back in the day. Our former director Dennis Gould was here in May of 1974 making a final check of crates for one of the Smithsonian's traveling exhibitions! #Smithsonian175

#DYK today is the 175th birthday of the @Smithsonian? In celebration, here's one of our favorite baby pics! Pictured: The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, circa 1900, in its former location -- a shed behind the Smithsonian castle. We sure have come a long way in 100+ years!
