We would have enjoyed the exhibit, or just a chance to examing this painting more closely.

Suitable for the occasion. (I heard today that NPR read - and tweeted - the entire Declaration yesterday, the 26th time it had been read. It generated great controversy because many listeners felt they were hearing propaganda. Sorry. I digress.)
