Communities are celebrating Black History Month through powerful art and education that you can experience right from your computer or phone.

Boca Raton Museum of Art is offering virtual exhibits through online videos that highlight black artists and culture.

“The Signing” by Renee Cox is one of those exhibits. Her work highlights the contribution of people of color in building the United States by reinterpreting the signing of the Constitution.

The museum says this is about expanding beyond the four walls of the museum.

“I like to think that we have truly integrated our collection and our museum, so that from the walls to the staff to our attitudes, that we become model citizens, which we all need to be,” said. “So that I think is the message of February and Black History Month.”

The online webinar will be available until March.

The virtual art exhibits will stay online permanently.

* Support for the museum’s virtual exhibits (#BocaMuseumatHome) and their kid’s virtual programming #KeepKidsSmartwithArt is provided by the Art Bridges Foundation. Additional support for family programs is provided by PNC Grow Up Great.
