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!
Since American Moments: Photography from The Phillips Collection opened just a few weeks ago, we have already received almost 500 responses to our Make Your Own Portrait in-gallery interactive. The exhibition’s emphasis on vision can be seen in these highlighted submissions, all of which take the human eye as their subject. Be on the lookout for more eye-catching portraits to come!
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.
