Portraits by Bush to be exhibited at library

DALLAS (AP) — Portraits painted by former President George W. Bush will be featured in an exhibit at his presidential library this spring.

The exhibit titled "The Art of Leadership: A President's Personal Diplomacy" will open in early April at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas.

The exhibit exploring relationships Bush formed with other world leaders will feature more than two dozen portraits by Bush that have never before been exhibited. Bush, who left office in 2009, has taken up oil painting in recent years.

Artifacts, photographs and personal reflections will also be on display.

The George W. Bush Presidential Center, which includes the library and museum, opened last year on the campus of Southern Methodist University.
