Bibs, Dogs, Hip Hop, and Hair: Miss Amelia’s Thoughts

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 this month’s installment of giggle-worthy submissions.

The Phillips Collection made a splash at this year’s #Artlympics, taking home the gold in the #BestArtRemake category with a re-enactment of William Merritt Chase’s Hide and Seek. Former Museum Assistant and Marketing Intern Piper Grosswendt also staged an award-winning #BestArtTwin submission with the Phillips’s Woman in Profile by Chaim Soutine. As the Artlympics put it on Instagram, “she blue-steeled her way to gold with this photo.” Wondering why there’s a blue goblin-esque creature in the pictures? That’s Artie the Artlympian, official mascot of the Artlympics, presenting the winners with the gold. Congratulations to all participants and winners! We invite you to challenge our title in the 2014 Artlympics.
