The exhibit, "From FDR to Obama: Presidents on Time,'' opened Friday.
It includes 30 works, ranging from traditional oilpaintings to a pop-art sculpture bust of Richard Nixon made fromstrips of newspaper.
The gallery holds more than 2,000 works of art from Time magazine. Every president since 1923 except for Herbert Hoover has been portrayed on the magazine's cover.
Acting museum director Brandon Fortune says the Time portraits help fuel a discussion that links art, history and biography.
Theexhibit is open until September.
