In a world of selfies, what does it mean to make portraits that aren’t necessarily about looking beautiful, but express more deeply who you are, who you love, and what’s really valuable in our community?

Young artists from ART 180’s Teen Council created stories about unknown residents that provided context for who they may have been. They each used different materials to recreate these portraits which honor individuals almost lost to history.
