The Outwin 2016: American Portraiture Today

From the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery comes a showcase of today's most commendable American portraits, the finalists from the triennial Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition.

Every three years, the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery invites artists to participate in the most prestigious portrait contest in the country: the juried Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. In 2016, its fourth iteration, jurors selected 43 winning works from more than 2,500 entries. The resulting exhibition has become a pivotal marker because, for the first time ever, the Portrait Gallery is sending it on tour. Tacoma Art Museum is honored to be the first museum to host The Outwin 2016: American Portraiture Today, and will be the only West Coast venue.
