BEYONCÉ’S HISTORIC VOGUE PORTRAIT TO BE DISPLAYED AT SMITHSONIAN

Beyoncé’s Vogue Portrait taken by Tyler Mitchell, will be on display at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Tyler Mitchell shared this news on his Instagram on Tuesday, expressing his gratitude and excitement for the honor.

“A year ago today we broke the flood gates open. Since then it was important to spend the whole year running through them making sure every piece of the gate was knocked down. And now I’m glad to share this picture is being acquired into the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection,” Mitchell wrote alongside the now-famous photo. No word on when the photograph will go on display. 

The portrait, which appeared in Vogue‘s September issue, is titled “See Your Halo” and was taken in the English countryside of London.Tyler Mitchell’s Beyoncé portrait to be displayed at the Smithsonian
