Baltimore painter Amy Sherald and Kehinde Wiley have been commissioned to paint former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama’s official portraits for the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC

Sherald garnered national attention after winning a portrait competition at the National Portrait Gallery. As noted by Baltimore Magazine, her painting “Miss Everything (Unsuppressed Deliverance) won the 2016 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition, which brought with it a $25,000 prize. That painting is currently touring the country as part of an exhibition of the competition’s top entries. Sherald was the first woman to have ever won the prize.”
