Hear BMA Trustee and artist Amy Sherald, artist Stephen Towns, and BMA Director Christopher Bedford in conversation during the next VOICES event, presented by The Church of the Redeemer.


Artist and BMA Trustee Amy Sherald recently unveiled the official portrait of former First Lady Michelle Obama. She is best known for her portrait paintings that both reflect and see beyond the everyday circumstances of her subject.



Stephen Towns, a mixed-media artist with work currently on view at the BMA, says that “the portraits I create ... mirror my struggle to attain a sense of self-knowledge, self-worth and spirituality.”
