Here you can create your own exhibit on a topic of your choice, just like a museum curator. Your exhibit may draw from only the images and information available in the Picture This collection, or to enhance your exhibit, you can add your own content using images from the web or personal photographs and memorabilia.
Follow the steps below to create your own museum-worthy exhibit. Note: Your exhibits will be viewable by all Picture This visitors.
Steps to Create Your Exhibit
Browse the website. What would you like your exhibit to be about? To get started, go to Browse Pictures and start exploring the images in a certain time period. Or, you can use the Search box to search pictures about particular people or topics.
Choose a theme. What’s the big idea for your exhibit? Explain: the big idea is the take home message (thesis) of your exhibit.
Curatorial statement. Expand your big idea and write a 250-word essay about your thesis. This is called a "curatorial statement."
Support your thesis. How do the images support your thesis (curatorial statement)? Write a sentence or two for each of the images in your exhibit that supports your thesis.
