A free portrait! Yes, it’s true. You can have your very own studio portrait taken and receive a copy of the digital file via email. Here’s the deal. I am an Artist-In-Residence at the Huntington Beach Art Center from March 2 – April 9, 2011. My project involves taking a portrait of anyone who wants one, and asking them a question – How has the collapse of the economy affected your life? The portrait and your answer will be printed and displayed in the gallery. As the month continues, more and more portraits will be placed on view. When there are enough, an American flag will be constructed from the images on the gallery wall. The intention is to find out the results the drastic economic conditions have had on our everyday living situations. A model release will be requested to display your likeness.
I will be at the Huntington Beach Art Center beginning March 2 – April 9th at these times: Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 5-8 p.m., and Friday and Saturdays from 12-5 p.m. You can stop in during those hours to have your portrait taken.
Hope to see you at the HBAC.
