New to the Nasher's collection is a painting by Amy Sherald, the official portrait artist of former First Lady Michelle Obama, whose portrait has been such a hit among visitors to the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. Another Amy Sherald painting was also in the exhibition "Southern Accent: Seeking the American South in Contemporary Art" that originated at the Nasher in 2016. "Light is easy to love.," was a gift from Jennifer McCracken New (T’90, L’94) and Jason New (L’94).
