Mrs. Obama’s Portrait To Be Taken Down Sunday Ahead of Tour

The portrait of Michelle Obama hanging at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. will be taken down on Sunday (May 23) ahead of its national tour.  

The Hill reports that the painting of the former first lady by Amy Sherald and the oil-on-canvas portrait of former President Barack Obama by Kehinde Wiley won’t return to D.C. until 2022. On June 18, the five-city “Obama Portraits Tour” will kick off in the former FLOTUS’ hometown of Chicago before making its way to other cities, including Houston, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and Atlanta.
