Piece by Piece Field Trip to see the Kehinde Wiley exhibit at Roberts Places
If you're a lover of contemporary art, then there's no better place to be than Roberts Places for the Kehinde Wiley exhibit. This exhibit is a must-see for anyone who appreciates art that is bold, vibrant, and full of diversity. Since the Piece by Piece artists and staff appreciate all of those things we went on a field trip to Roberts Places to wrap up Black History Month
The featured exhibit was works from Kehinde Wiley. Mr. Wiley is a world-renowned artist who is known for his larger-than-life portraits of African American men and women. His use of bright, bold colors and intricate patterns make his works truly mesmerizing. The Roberts Places exhibit features some of Wiley's most famous works, including his iconic "Napoleon Leading the Army Over the Alps" portrait.
As we walked through the exhibit, we were transported to a world of color and culture. Each portrait is unique and tells a story of its own. The attention to detail in each piece is truly remarkable, and we got lost in the intricate patterns and textures that Wiley has created.
We were fortunate to have the senior gallery director, Mary Skarbek host the Piece by Piece artists and share the history of the gallery as well as a detailed overview of the exhibit. The Piece by Piece artists were able to ask questions and discuss the portraits in detail with Ms. Skarbek.
Overall, the Kehinde Wiley exhibit at Roberts Places is not to be missed. It's a truly immersive experience that left the artists feeling inspired and enriched. We can't wait to see how their inspiration is translated into their mosaics!
