Virtual Gallery: Fall 2016 pARTicipate Wall

The Museum isn't just a place to look at art, but also a place to pARTicipate as well! Between free and paid family programming, tours, traveling trunks, and self-guided activity cards in the galleries, there are a ton of ways to be involved and create at the Museum. One of our favorite ways for visitors to pARTicipate is the pARTicipate Wall, nestled in our Interactive Educational Area.

This is a map of all the interactive education experiences at the Museum. The pARTicipate Wall is located in the Interactive Educational Area. Planning a visit to the Museum soon? Download this Kids Museum Rules and Map to start planning your trip today!

The pARTicipate Wall rotates every three months, so families always have a new and interesting project to do when they visit the Museum. For Fall 2016, we were inspired by Luster Willis's Untitled (Portrait of a Lady), on loan from Gordon W. Baileyand challenged visitors to create fancy self-portraits of themselves. A new year means a new pARTicipate Wall activity, but before we debut our new prompt, we wanted to share some of the incredible work visitors created last semester!

This portrait will be on display through the end of February as part of Oxford's Fiber Arts Festival.

Without further ado, here are a selection of some of the great, creative, and fancy self-portraits visitors created in Fall 2016!
