PORTRAIT DE PRISCILLA PETIT CHIEN
MICKALENE THOMAS FOR MOMA
LittleCollector + Mickalene Thomas + MoMA = LOVE
In a special project just for kids in collaboration with LittleCollector and the MoMA, we are very excited to announce that artist MickaleneThomas has created a brand new work for young art lovers entitled Portrait de Priscilla Petit Chien. Says Thomas, "When I was invited to participate in the LittleCollector project, I started thinking about what kids would be interested in and what they would like to collect. I have a miniature dachshund named Priscilla and thought that maybe she could help me come up with a good image. She has already seen many photo shoots at my studio with human models, and she ended up acting like a real professional who loves the camera!"
What is Priscilla's take on her time in front of the camera? Read our exclusive interviewwith Mickalene and Priscilla on our blog.
This limited edition archival print is available ONLY through the MoMA Design Store. All prints are framed in white wood and measure 14x16." This work is available for $140 to keep prices accessible for families and all proceeds from the sale of Portrait de Priscilla Petit Chien will be donated to the Museum of Modern Art.
