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.

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!
