The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery held its biannual American Portrait Gala on Sunday night.
This year’s honorees included giants from business, fashion, science and entertainment, including Frances Arnold, Jeff Bezos, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Indra Nooyi, Anna Wintour, and Earth, Wind & Fire.
“Each of the honorees, we have their portrait in the gallery,” National Portrait Gallery director Kim Sajet told WTOP. “We wanted to make a direct connection with what we have up and how we talk about American achievement, people who have made a major contribution to history and culture, then have them come and speak. … None of them have been up before — and quite a few are brand-new commissions.”
