Explore! With the National Portrait Gallery
 The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, in partnership with Explore! Children’s Museum, will opens its first-ever space dedicated to children this winter. “Explore! with the Portrait Gallery” will allow kids to do hands-on activities with portraiture to answer questions such as “What is a portrait?” “How do I see myself?” and “How do others see me?” They will trace each other's silhouettes, strike a pose for a projected video art piece, and experiment with expression and emotion by building faces out of illustrated blocks. This will be the museum's first interactive bilingual gallery.
Beginning Jan. 28. Explore! is for children ages 18 months to 8 years. First floor. 8th and F Streets, NW, Washington, D.C.
