The Outwin: American Portraiture Today

Published on October 20, 2020

New England Premiere of The Outwin: American Portraiture Today from the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.

The Outwin: American Portraiture Today premiered at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in the fall of 2019. Every three years, artists living and working in the United States are invited to submit one of their recent portraits to a panel of experts chosen by the museum in the call for the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. The works of nearly 50 finalists were selected from over 2,600 entries. For the first time in the triennial’s history, the museum specifically asked that submissions respond “to the current political and social context,” and this resulting presentation offers perspectives on some of today’s most pressing issues.

ARC Living Master Luis Alvarez Roure is among the participating artists.

The exhibition runs from October 3, 2020 - April 4, 2021 at the Springfield Museums - D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts, 21 Edwards Street, Springfield, MA 01103.
