Happy National Hot Dog Month! This work is currently on display in our Education Gallery as part of the installation #AllTheFeels. This installation invites visitors to ask themselves how various works of art make them feel. Joy, anger, surprise–feelings abound in art and our everyday lives. Artists often use facial expressions, gestures, colors, and even the arrangement of the composition to express feelings in art. Visit the gallery and tag us @fjjma with a picture and emojis to express how the art in #AllTheFeels makes you feel!
