“Untitled” by Museum Assistant Sue Ahn
You can create a portrait in the American Moments: Photographs from The Phillips Collection inspired by a gallery in the exhibition that features portraits of artists, including notable painters, photographers, and musicians. We asked staff to create a few kick off submissions (check out a few we featured earlier this week); here are some of our favorites. Share yours with #AmericanMoments and you might see it featured here during the exhibition.

Quick! If you had to create a portrait of one person right now, who would it be? A family member? Yourself? Your pet?
We have all of the necessary supplies to create a portrait at a station in American Moments: Photographs from The Phillips Collection, inspired by a gallery in the exhibition that features portraits of artists, including notable painters, photographers, and musicians. To help us kick off the in-gallery activity, we asked the many artists on staff here at the Phillips to get creative with their submissions. Join us for opening weekend June 6 & 7 to create your own! Share it on social media with #AmericanMoments and you might see your submission featured here on The Experiment Station.
