ART + DESIGN FACULTY SHOWCASE 2017
SELF PORTRAITURE: A SELF-PORTRAIT REVEALS MORE THAN JUST THE LIKENESS OF IT’S SITTER
In an existential grasp for self-assurance, the “selfie” provides proof that we are alive and well in the world. Our students utilize social media as a blank canvas to create a self-identity through an accretion of images and text that form a portrait of who they are, either real or imagined. This year, for our Art + Design Faculty Showcase, the faculty have created a wide array of artworks that allude to their personal identities.
This annual event features the work of faculty from within Salem State University’s nationally accredited Art + Design Department. Works by both full-time and adjunct studio faculty in printmaking, painting, design, sculpture, photography and various other media are exhibited.
