North Carolina Museum of Art Golden Mummies of Egypt
Picture Your Portrait in These Frames
Located on the Upper Level, Food Court
Crabtree is partnering with the NCMA to celebrate art, history, culture and artistic expression surrounding the Golden Mummies exhibit currently on display at NCMA through July 2021.
In a series of lavishly illustrated thematic sections, the exhibition uses the outstanding collections of the Manchester Museum to showcase multicultural Roman Egypt (circa 300 B.C.E.–200 C.E.), where diverse Egyptian, Roman, and Greek communities and cultural influences were blended. The exhibition journey traces expectations for the afterlife and introduces cultural constructions of identity, strikingly demonstrated by haunting, painted panel portraits.
We are inviting local individuals to create a portrait of themselves for a community portrait art initiative.
Select portraits received will be enlarged to 36” x 48” print and displayed in frames on a wall at Crabtree in a highly visible area near the Food Court. Other portraits will be featured on the digital walls at Crabtree and in social media.
Individuals can submit work from Monday, April 26 - June 4. Portraits should be submitted on 8.5 x 11 (portrait orientation), white paper. Name, city, email and/or phone are required. A high res photograph can be mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at Guest Services for submission.
Participants will be entered into a random drawing for a chance to win NCMA Golden Mummies exhibition tickets or merchandise.
