WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - A queen is coming to the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.
Beyoncé — known to her fans across the world as "Queen Bey" — will have one of her photos featured among the legends and icons that hang on the walls of the museum.
"Our mission is to tell the story of America by portraying the people who shape this nation's history, development, and culture. We are happy to work with Tyler to acquire his photograph of Beyoncé Knowles into the Portrait Gallery's collection," the museum tweeted Tuesday.
The glamorous photo, which first appeared in Vogue Magazine's 2018 fashion issue, is also notable for the man behind the camera — Tyler Mitchell is the first black man to have a photo featured on the cover of Vogue.
"A year ago today we broke the flood gates open. Now I’m glad to share this picture is being acquired into the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection," Mitchell tweeted.
