Museum: Portrait Gallery

Location: 1st Floor

Drawn from the Portrait Gallery's permanent collection, this exhibition features individuals prominent in sports, entertainment, and other fields of endeavor during the last 10 years. It also reflects the variety of media the Portrait Gallery is now collecting and addresses the museum's recently established policy of accepting living subjects into the collection. Individuals represented in this show include: Chuck Close, LL Cool J, Toni Morrison, Cormac McCarthy, Willie Nelson, President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Martha Stewart. Also featured is a projected video -- The Late Night Triad by Jason Salavon, which features Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, and David Letterman -- and video portraits of George Clooney and LeBron James that are created through a process pioneered by Lincoln Schatz.
