Everyone looks in the mirror. We watch ourselves as we brush our teeth, put on make up, comb our hair.  Artists, however who paint self-portraits, look much  deeper into that mirror. Self-portraits have been a preoccupation of artists since Rembrandt who depicted himself with sensitivity and insight at various stage of his life.  

At this time, 2018, when we as a nation  are having difficulty explaining ourselves to ourselves and people around the world, it is especially important to look through the artist’s eyes to reveal psychological truths.

Opioid Protest at Met Museum Targets Donors Connected to OxyContin

Anti-opioid activists unfurled banners and scattered pill bottles on Saturday inside the Sackler Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, which is named for a family connected to the powerful painkilling drug OxyContin. 
The protest, which was organized by a group started by the celebrated photographer Nan Goldin, started just after 4 p.m., when several dozen people converged at the Temple of Dendur inside the wing.
The wing is named after Arthur, Mortimer and Raymond Sackler, brothers who in the 1970s donated $3.5 million toward its construction. Their scientific and marketing skills also transformed a small business into what became Purdue Pharma, the company that developed OxyContin, which has been widely prescribed and abused. The drug’s active ingredient, oxycodone, is among the most common painkillers involved in prescription opioid overdose deaths, which have become an unrelenting crisis in the United States.  Read the Article here
