Who  influences you?  In this painting, Rembrandt was inspired by Titian’s  painting by the same name. How often do you reference other images and  styles? How can you ‘shout out’ to the sources of your inspiration while  still remaining original? In the spirit of our college Self, Observed exhibition, we announce an opportunity for high school students. The Museum   invites North Carolina high school students to create original art inspired by any work in our collection. Visit our Teens, Inspired tumblr blog and spread the word to students and teachers in NC!
