Logo for the Portraits podcast

Welcome to Portraits, a podcast by the National Portrait Gallery. Please listen in as Director Kim Sajet chats with artists, historians, and contemporary thought-leaders about identity, race, the art of portraiture, and more.  

Our inaugural season will focus on women as we join other Smithsonian museums with the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative. Across the Smithsonian, we will illuminate women’s pivotal roles in building and sustaining our country and will expand what we know of our shared history. Here at the Portraits podcast, you can listen in as Kim and her guests explore remarkable women—past and present—through the lens of portraiture.  Visit this page for links and images that are referenced in each podcast.
