Portaits (But No Pictures, Please)

Washington DC’s National Portrait Gallery is holding a competition. But it has some problems… “Maybe the worst move of all was to limit the contest to the old-fashioned arts of painting and sculpture. If you’re simply looking for the best imaginable portrait art, why rule out all the photographic media that artists love to use these days? Some of the best artworks of recent years have been pictures of people, done in film and video and photography, by world-famous artists.”
