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!

You’ve Got To Be Kid-ding Me!

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!

Imitating works from the American Moments exhibition for a Phillips after 5 InstaChallenge. Great job, @wildeladymaj!

At last week’s Phillips after 5, we challenged visitors to snap photos around the museum to win prizes in an InstaChallenge. Out of tons of great submissions, here’s the cream of the crop.
