To celebrate the last month of Made in the USA, we’ve asked Phillips staff to create acrostic poems for works in the exhibition. We’ll feature some of our favorite submissions over the next few weeks. In this post, Chief Operating Officer Sue Nichols muses on life with this view.

Over the course of the exhibition, we’ve been highlighting some of our favorite submissions to our Made in the USA in-gallery comment station. The station asks visitors to respond to Thomas Eakins‘s Miss Amelia Van Buren by answering the question, “What is Amelia Thinking?”. Below are the best of the bunch from some of our younger visitors.
What about you? If you have an idea of what might be running through her head, tweet us your submission with #MyAmericanArt.
