Diversity in White House Art

Diversity in White House Art

The White House Collection features a variety of paintings, sculptures, drawings, and historical prints that reflect America’s artistic heritage. In recent years, first families have worked with curators and art experts to expand the breadth of this collection by incorporating diverse representations of American life, including works by women and artists of color. In this collection, learn about these artists and explore their artwork.

On December 1, 2020, the Association held a two-panel symposium on the history of diverse artists in the White House Collection. Learn more at the button below.
