Gallery opening and reception in the Library Meeting Room.
The Art of the Selfie is a joint MSU RCAH - Project 60/50 – East Lansing Public Library Program
This free, two-part workshop was designed to encourage girls to use selfies to dig deep into ideas about beauty and self esteem in US culture today.
At the first session, on March 25, girls in grades 7-12 met at the Library to engage in dialogue about how we think about our own beauty and then learn from artists and photographers how to artistically express our ideas through selfies. Girls then worked independently to produce a selfie to be printed and displayed at the library.
At the second session, on April 27 from 2-4pm, the participants' selfies will be displayed for the public.
