Creating and Curating with the Brooklyn Museum - Upper School

Upper School students in Creating and Curating with the Brooklyn Museum spent the semester exploring paintings in the Museum’s American art collection and considering the question, “What is American?”. For this project, students chose one painting from the collection and embroidered their own details upon the original ones in order to emphasize or change the meaning and reveal the countless perspectives on the idea of the “American”.
