Face Diversity Foster Inclusion, Inside Out
The Martha Gault Art Gallery warmly welcomes all to attend the Opening Reception of “Face Diversity, Foster Inclusion, Inside Out, The People’s Art Project”, on Monday October 28th, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Within the Art Gallery exhibition, we invite your responses, comments and questions to the both the public “outside” portrait project and the “inside” version. Face Diversity Foster Inclusion is on view in the art gallery , Mondays through Thursdays, from October 28 through November 7. The film “Faces Places” by Director Agnes Varda and photographer/muralist J.R. will be screened. Last Spring, the Slippery Rock community was invited to have their portraits documented in support of our mission “face diversity foster inclusion.” For eight consecutive Common Hours in April in Smith Student Center, student photographers were available to take your portrait. Kaleidoscope Arts also hosted a public photobooth in downtown Slippery Rock. The resulting portraits are now installed on academic building walls around the Quad, and here in the Martha Gault Art Gallery. Inside Out: The People’s Art Project is a participant-powered art project that started in 2011 by J.R. and has since gone global, with over 1,300 group actions in 129 countries culminating in 260,000 5’x3’ portraits installed in the public sphere. We are excited to have Slippery Rock University join communities around the world to literally and symbolically put a face to our belief in and commitment to equality, equity and inclusion. Martha Gault Art Gallery offers all-accessible parking and entry on Campus Drive.
