Outside the Lines by Chris Bonnell





Outside the Lines, Chris Bonnell's wall-size coloring installation.

Outside the Lines, on view from March 11 through April 4, is a dynamic, interactive exhibit created by illustrator and Art League instructor Chris Bonnell. For it, he reimagines popular D.C. and Alexandria landmarks taken over by lush plants and fantastical animals. Step into our solo gallery and add to his vision by coloring on a wall-size Illustrated map. Saunter over to the Wild Animal Selfie Wall and strike a pose, then visit the Creature Tree where stickers and drawing supplies await you for making mini creatures of your own to add to the installation.
