Smithsonian’s Portraits of Pittsburgh
Many Pittsburghers – from inventors, to actors, to athletes – have been honored by having their portrait included in the National Portrait Gallery. In this live, virtual program, students will explore the stories of some of these special Pittsburghers through an online interactive tour of the Smithsonian’s Portraits of Pittsburgh exhibit, incorporating close looking and interactive activities. Students will also examine the work of Pittsburgh artists, including Burton Morris, and teachers will be provided with a virtual portrait-making activity to extend the program. This program also includes a look at works from the Master Visual Artists VII: Preserving the Legacy exhibit that is currently on display at the History Center.
