Smithsonian To Feature Steve Jobs’ Patents In D.C.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Smithsonian Institution is preparing an exhibit featuring Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs’ more than 300 technology patents on the National Mall with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The exhibit opening May 11, entitled “The Patents and Trademarks of Steve Jobs: Art and Technology that Changed the
World,” will be on view through July 13 at the Smithsonian’s Ripley Center.
Smithsonian Secretary Wayne Clough says it will feature materials from the patent office and archival material from the
Smithsonian’s collections. It will include a 1985 Apple Macintosh computer, mouse and keyboard; a 2005 NeXT computer; a 2010 Apple iPod; and copies of 312 documents.
Clough says this is the first in a series of exhibits planned with the patent office.
Jobs died last year of complications from pancreatic cancer.
