Event Details

August 19 – November 9, 2019

Camera phones and social media have fueled a renaissance in portraiture. We are all now photographers and artists, with our friends, family, and pets serving as our inspiration. Whose creative genius is on display when you take a picture of your friend doing something great? This breakdown in authorship is particularly acute when artists depict other artists. This interactive exhibition places the visitor in the role of artist and influencer, drawing inspiration from both traditional and new portrait mediums. There will be an evening reception on Friday, August 30 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., and we hope you will join us!

The Museum is pleased to announce new hours this fall: Monday-Friday 10:00 to 5:00 p.m. with extended hours on Thursdays until 8:00 p.m., and Saturday hours from 10:00 to 4:00 p.m. The Museum will be closed on Sundays. Admission is always FREE!
