Head down to the National Portrait Gallery this President’s Day to interact with Google Glass in the new exhibit “Portrait of America.”

Renowned artist David Datuna’s latest installment in his “Viewpoint of Billions” series gives visitors a chance to merge 21st century technology with important clips from American history. The display features a 12-foot wide American flag mosaic that, with the help of Google Glass, reveals images, videos and other interactive elements.

This is the first art installment to use Google Glass as an enhancement tool for the art experience.

The free exhibit is open 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
