The dazzling variety of media and diverse approaches to the exploration of "self" and "other" challenge preconceived notions of portraiture and expand visitors’ imaginations. This competition and resulting exhibition "The Outwin2016: American Portraiture Today" will showcase excellence and innovation with a strong focus on the variety of portrait media used by artists today.
