Summary:
In October 2006, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor sat for two 3-hour sessions, agreeing to have her portrait painted by not one, but 25 separate artists. In the end, these painters - some amateurs, some professionals - created vastly different images of this iconic figure, shedding light on both their subject, as well as the process and heritage of portraiture in American history and politics.
