Skirball Cultural Center:

Don’t miss two works at the Skirball Cultural Center from The World Stage: Israel by Kehinde Wiley, who was commissioned to paint President Barack Obama's official portrait for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.
For The World Stage: Israel, Wiley chose his subjects from nightclubs and shopping districts in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Lod, elevating everyday people into contemporary royalty through his majestic grand-scale portraiture.
