The Boca Raton Museum of Art has launched a new online community initiative for audiences staying at home, with the new exhibition “Eye to I: Self Portraits from the National Portrait Gallery.”

“Being creative has not been canceled,” says Irvin Lippman, the Executive Director of the Boca Raton Museum of Art. “Art, culture, and creativity have always made a difference in powerful ways, especially during challenging times. While the Museum is temporarily closed, we will continue to give back to the community. These artists in Eye to I made a lasting mirror effect of themselves, creating a very personal art that engages us – the viewer.”

Watch the new extended video below, for “Eye to I: Self Portraits from the National Portrait Gallery” at the Boca Raton Museum of Art that is now offered online for audiences at home:

The show was created to commemorate the National Portrait Gallery’s 50th anniversary, celebrating the artists who make the NPG Collection so extraordinary.
