December 18, 2017



In 2016 the University of Oxford commissioned a portrait of Kelsey Leonard, the first Native American woman to earn a degree from the institution. The portrait was unveiled in the exhibition 'The full picture: Oxford in portraits', which runs through January 7, 2018. After the exhibition the portrait will be moved to a permanent location in the Exam Schools. This is the first portrait of its kind and the first portrait of a Native American alum by a Native American artist to be unveiled at the university.
