Description:

Every three years, the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery invites artists across America to present the art of portraiture through its Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. Established in 2006, it is the premiere national juried competition to celebrate excellence and innovation in portraiture. Drawing submissions from emerging, mid-career, and established artists, the competition has accelerated the careers of participants and included acclaimed artists such as Bo Bartlett, Philip Grausman, Beverly McIver, Tina Mion, Burton Silverman, and Ginny Stanford. This exhibition features 43 artists and will only be shown at four US museums.  This exhibition was organized by the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington DC.
