An exhibition at the Weston Library presents new portraits of a diverse range of living Oxonians.

Hundreds of portraits of exceptional individuals hang on the walls around the University of Oxford: celebrating our past, making visible our values for the future, and helping shape the present environment.

The full picture: Oxford in portraits displays new portraits of a diverse range of people selected from over a hundred nominations of living Oxonians.

One of the new pictures is of our own Dorothy Bishop.  The drawing by artist Benjamin Sullivan is part of Diversifying Portraiture initiative, which aims to broaden the range of people represented around the University.

The exhibition (which is free) runs until 7 January 2018 in the Blackwell Hall at the Weston Library (map).
