Description

YOUR Art Museum is pleased to host the incredible traveling exhibition, Eye to I: Self-Portraits from the National Portrait Gallery. Organized and drawn from the collection of the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, this exhibition examines how artists in the United States have chosen to portray themselves since the beginning of the 20th century. Through painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, and video, these artists raise important questions about self-perception and self-representation. 

The exhibition includes sixty self-portraits by artists such as Robert Arneson, Alexander Calder, Lois Dodd, Deborah Kass, Elaine de Kooning, Jacob Lawrence, Louise Nevelson, Irving Penn, Robert Rauschenberg, Fritz Scholder, Roger Shimomura, Edward Steichen, and many more.

The exhibition was curated by Brandon Brame Fortune, formerly Chief Curator at the National Portrait Gallery. The exhibition has been organized by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.Cand supported in part by Mr. and Mrs. Michael H. Podell. Support for the Springfield Art Museum’s hosting of this exhibition has been provided in part by the Melinda J. McDaniel Charitable Trust.

See this special exhibition through January 17, 2021 in our New Wing Galleries.

This information has been gathered from reliable sources, but it is still possible that all information may not be accurate. In addition, events are occasionally canceled, rescheduled, or postponed for a variety of reasons, and the SCVB is not always aware of these changes. As a result, the SCVB is not responsible for the accuracy of event information. It is recommended that participants verify information with the event organizer prior to attending or purchasing event tickets.
