Submit Your Picture, Become a Piece of Art

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Artist Ahree Lee wants your picture to include in her art project. A new video installation where Ahree combines photos of people from across the Bay Area.  Your mug, if you choose to accept this mission, will be included in her digital art project and displayed at the Asian Art Museum Thursday Night July 23, 2015.

The project is about Bay Area people from different communities and inspired by Korean wrapping cloths, or bojagi, often used to wrap gifts. Bojagi are created by sewing together small scraps of fabric into a patchwork design full of beauty and utility from what would otherwise be wasted.  The Aritst’s Statement: My work uses digital technology to facilitate self-examination and the manipulation of subjects over time.

So! If you want to see your face in a museum, submit a pic today!  (Deadline is July 2nd)  I know Stuart and I will definitely be submitting portraits of ourselves.
