  All Day Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage   Annie Leibovitz achieved her status as one of America's great photographers with unforgettable images of celebrities from John Lennon to Johnny Depp. But more recently, Leibovitz has trained her camera on famous places and objects, revealing more of herself in the process. "Pilgrimage," an exhibition of more than 70 of these stunning photographs from the Smithsonian American Art Museum's collection, opens at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum on Feb. 8, 2014, and runs through Aug. 31. Visitors will see the landscapes that captured Leibovitz's imagination: Niagara Falls, Yellowstone National Park, a New Mexico mesa. They can scrutinize her close-ups of objects like Emily Dickinson's only surviving dress, Elvis Presley's motorcycle and a bullet hole put in a target by Annie Oakley. Abraham Lincoln plays a major role in "Pilgrimage." Leibovitz photographed the stovepipe hat and the gloves Lincoln had with him on the night of his assassination, as well as a handwritten copy of the Gettysburg Address, photographic negatives of Lincoln and the Lincoln Memorial. Her photos of the bloodstained gloves were taken at the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. Access to the exhibition will be free with paid admission to the presidential museum. The Leibovitz photographs will be complemented by elements from the Lincoln Presidential Library's own collections, selected by Mary Michals. The museum will also present a reading of Virginia Woolf's essay "A Room of One's Own" and selections from the play "The Belle of Amherst," both directed by Phil Funkenbusch. Also on the schedule: a screening of the Marilyn Monroe thriller "Niagara."
