Smithsonian’s Portraits of Pittsburgh
In this program for high school students, students will examine stories of the local people whose portraits form part of the National Portrait Gallery collection, using their portraits and interactive activities to investigate their contributions and impact. Students will create a portrait of their own after exploring the work of Pittsburgh-born artists like Burton Morris, whose night-stand portraits present a different type of portraiture.
Students will also view works from the Master Visual Artists VII: Preserving the Legacy exhibit as part of this program.
