Earlier today, Barack Obama and Michelle Obama attended their official portrait unveiling at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., joining other Presidents and First Ladies in the historic portrait collection.

Artists Kehinde Wiley of Brooklyn, NY, and Amy Sherald of Baltimore, MD, were selected to paint President Obama and Mrs. Obama respectively, becoming the first African American artists to create Smithsonian-commissioned portraits of a former President and First Lady.
