Using images of various elements from paintings in the art collection of the Center of the West’s Whitney Western Art Museum, “History Canvas” lets you create your very own masterpiece. Based on a popular “Create Your West” computer kiosk in the Whitney Museum, this interactive invites you to mix and match foregrounds and backgrounds, landscapes and shelters, animals and trees.
