For this episode of “Art Matters,” BMA Director Christopher Bedford interviews Baltimore-based artist Amy Sherald, who recently received a commission to paint former First Lady Michelle Obama’s official portrait. Chris and Amy talk about her work as a conceptual portraitist, how the chaotic energy of Lexington Market influenced her work, and how she sees herself in the context of art history.
