The Obama portraits make their Brooklyn debut this summer! From the moment they were unveiled, Kehinde Wiley’s portrait of President Barack Obama and Amy Sherald’s portrait of Mrs. Michelle Obama have inspired an unprecedented response from the public. We’re excited to be the tour’s second stop, plus the only northeast venue to bring these remarkable paintings to those who might not otherwise have an opportunity to view them.

Tickets for The Obama Portraits Tour include General Admission but not KAWS: WHAT PARTY (closing September 5) or Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams (opening September 10), which each require a separate ticket.
