Project Onward Spring Portrait Slam

Intuit welcomes back Project Onward for another Portrait Slam and pop-up sale! Seven artists from Project Onward will be at the museum, ready to create a personalized painting for you to keep or share with a loved one. You can choose to sit for your portrait or bring a photo of you or your pet from which the artists can work (as much as we love animals, we ask you do not bring your pets to the museum). Each session takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Meet the artists!

Portraits begin at $30 for individuals; the price will increase by $10 for each additional subject.

There’s limited availability, so we recommend scheduling your session in advance! To do so, contact Whitney Oliver, studio manager at Project Onward, at Walk-ins are welcome, pending artist availability. Payments will be accepted on-site at the session (cash or credit card accepted).
