In the Lecture Gallery: Beyond the Selfie 

The Art Center Highland Park (TACHP) presents a juried exhibition of work that reaches beyond the traditional concept of a self-portrait. With over 75 entries, our guest jurors, Judy Norris and Suzette Bross, chose art that reflects interpretations of the self-portrait theme . In today’s obsession with “Selfies,” we found that often artists push the boundaries of self-expression and  representation.

Cortesi Gallery: PhotoVoice

TACHP teams with the Highland Park Police Department and Edgewood Middle School, inspired by the International Program, Photovoice, to combine photography with social change and self-portraiture.  The HP police has asked students at Edgewood to create a photograph to reveal what a healthy life means to them. “It’s all about choices. Students are faced with making choices every day. The most important choices they are faced with often have an impact on their health and well-being.”
