Leslie Adams, who graduated from the University of Toledo with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio  Art in 1989, entered and was chosen as a finalist in the 2013 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. According to the Smithsonian web site, her self portrait, “Sensazione,” which also earned her a solo exhibition earlier this year with the Toledo Museum of Art, will hang in the National Portrait Gallery through February 2014. Her work is one of 48 chosen from thousands which were entered.

The Toledo Free Press featured Leslie’s story in a recent issue.
