From the venue:
In celebration of the Obama portraits being on display in the High’s galleries, we welcome Dorothy Moss and Taína Caragol from the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. Moss is the acting director of curatorial affairs and the coordinating curator of the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative; Caragol is the curator of painting and sculpture and Latinx art and history. The two—in conversation with Michael Rooks, Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art—will discuss the process of commissioning the Obama portraits from Amy Sherald and Kehinde Wiley.
