You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney Educators! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.  

Each of the four life-size wooden female figures in Women and Dog is a self-portrait of the artist Marisol. The central head even includes a black-and-white photograph of her, and the multiple faces on the two adjacent figures were cast in plaster directly from the artist’s face. The small girl represents Marisol as a child. 

Learn more about the art and life of Marisol. Then, create a six-sided self-portrait of your own!

  • The Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holding of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum's key resource. The Museum's signature exhibition, the Biennial, is the country's leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.
