Una visita a la Galería Nacional de Retratos de Washington, DC altera para siempre la joven vida de Parker Curry cuando ve el retrato de la Primera Dama Michelle Obama.

Cuando Parker Curry se encontró cara a cara con el trascendente retrato de la Primera Dama Michelle Obama de Amy Sherald en la Galería Nacional de Retratos, no solo vio a la Primera Dama de los Estados Unidos. Vio a una reina, una con seguridad en sí misma dinámica, realeza, belleza y verdad que capturó la imaginación de esta joven. Cuando un visitante del museo cercano tomó una foto de un Parker hipnotizado, se convirtió en una sensación en Internet. Inspirada por esta visita, Parker y su madre, Jessica Curry, cuentan la historia de una niña y su familia, cuyo viaje a un museo se convierte en un momento extraordinario, en un libro de imágenes conmovedoras.

Parker Looks Up sigue a Parker, junto con su hermana pequeña y su madre, y su mejor amiga Gia y la madre de Gia, mientras caminan por los pasillos de un museo, viendo pinturas de todos y cada uno, desde George Washington Carver hasta Frida Kahlo, flores exóticas para elegantes bailarinas. Luego, Parker pasa junto al retrato de Michelle Obama de Sherald... y casi lo pasa. Pero se detiene... ¡y mira hacia arriba!

Parker vio la posibilidad y la promesa, las esperanzas y los sueños de sí misma en esta poderosa pintura de Michelle Obama. Un momento cotidiano se convirtió en uno extraordinario... que continúa resonando con su poder, inspiración e impacto indeleble. Porque, como dijo Jessica Curry, “todo es posible independientemente de la raza, la clase o el género”.

Amy Sherald (b. 1970) is an American artist who primarily paints portraits of African Americans in everyday settings. In 2016, Sherald became the first woman as well as the first African American ever to win the National Portrait Gallery's Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition with her painting, Miss Everything (Unsuppressed Deliverance). The following year, she was selected by former First Lady Michelle Obama to paint her official portrait, becoming the first African American to receive a Presidential portrait commission from the National Portrait Gallery.
