Hundreds of thousands of people visit Grand Rapids for this annual arts festival. This is YOUR chance to have you and your story immortalized!
I'M LOOKING FOR FACES!
This project needs your support! This is a great opportunity to be a part of a beautiful piece of artwork and to be IMMORTALIZED! I am looking for pledges via kickstarter.com
With your help and your pledge, YOU can be immortalized in this installation. I am looking for 100 willing participants 18 and over to have their portrait painted and their story told in their own words. If you are brave enough to have your story told, you'll email me a digital photograph of yourself...it doesn't have to be fancy! (no nude photos or inappropriate photos will be accepted). I'll send you a consent form and a short questionnaire.
All portraits will be painted in a modern pop style on an 8x8" canvas. No last names will be posted on the installation.
Thank you for your support!!!
