The Portrait Project: A Lifetime of Art
As part of the exhibition design process for The Portrait Project, a select group of Boston artists allowed The MCCA Art Program to photograph their painting, drawing or collage and reproduce the image into a high quality reproduction print.
From child artist to Master Artist, each individual featured in this show has reached a significant milestone in their journey as an artist. Nusayabah is only four years old. She is just beginning to grasp how to hold a paint brush and mix primary colors. Perhaps someday she will learn about Arthur Polonsky, considered by many art scholars to be the best Expressionist painter living in Boston.
The Portrait Project is meant to convey our shared experience of growing older and how our sense of self changes and deepens over the course of a lifetime. This exhibit is currently on display at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
