Quite a few submissions at our American Moments make-your-own portrait station have literally turned their backs on traditional portraiture. One participant was even inspired by a photograph from the Phillips’s visitor’s guide to the museum! What do you think the people in these portraits are looking at?
Visitors to our portrait-making station in the American Moments exhibition have not just been capturing human likenesses. These submissions featured a number of animals. Here are a few that we think are doggone terrific!
Over the course of the American Moments exhibition, we’ve been featuring some of our favorite drawings from our in-gallery interactive. Below are a handful of portraits by some of our younger artists. Thanks Zia, Abby, Naita, Lily, Ellie, and Will for your contributions!
