Celebrities react to Barack and Michelle Obama's official portraits


The portraits will be on display at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. Both artists, Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald, are African-American.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Wiley and Sherald aren't the first black artists to create an official presidential portrait (that would be Simmie Knox, who created the White House paintings of Bill and Hillary Clinton), but they are the first black artists to create official presidential portraits specifically for the National Portrait Gallery.
