Painting and Sculpture

Gallery view of sculptures and paintings.

Body/Description

Explore Olmec statuettes from 800 B.C.E. on the same visit that you encounter 21st-century painting by world-renowned painter Kehinde Wiley. The sculptures and paintings from the beginning of time to today are all part of a continuum, which is why the Boca Raton Museum of Art does not divide our galleries up by categories. Toward our aim of making “collection connections” we have interspersed painting and sculpture across time and space so that you, the viewer, may draw your own interpretation of what defines a sculpture; what makes a painting.
