Celebrating American art and artists inspired by the 16th President of the United States.

1. To start, choose any sculpture from the map below.

2. Follow the clues to find your answer in the American Art Museum's collection. Here's a helpful hint: When searching the site, be sure to check the Artworks with Images box to get better results.

3. When you have identified the artwork that connects to the outdoor sculpture, show us by uploading an image to the Artful Abe Flickr Group. You can:

  • Come to the American Art Museum and photograph the artwork
  • Photograph your own restaging of the artwork
  • Or creatively reimagine the artwork in some other way
