Subject: Celebrating Democracy Inaugural Site (fwd)

Our national cultural institutions have partnered to create a Web site,
Celebrating Democracy (http://artsedge.kennedy-center.org/celeb/celeb.html)
in conjunction with the Inauguration. Jointly developed by The Library of
Congress, The Smithsonian Institution, The National Archives, The
National Endowment for the Arts, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the
Performing Arts, Celebrating Democracy features online presentations of
presidential memorabilia, photographs and documents from past inaugurations and
inaugural balls, and up-to-the-minute photographs of the 1997 inaugural

The goal of the Web site is to encourage teachers, students, and lifelong
learners to connect current events with American history by tapping into
the vast resources now available online from Washington's national
cultural institutions.
