“Thanks for participating in “What’s Your Beauty and Will You Share it with the World”! I’m hoping you’ll write a few sentences about your object and its beauty. Even better if you include something about the neighborhood, e.g. if you have a special spot of beauty you look forward to walking by, how you’ve seen the neighborhood change, story or rumor…. I ran the Shoebox Gallery on the corner of Chicago and Lake for eleven years and am planning a book about it. Your input would be a great help towards a portrait of the neighborhood!
You are invited to Beyond Repair in the Midtown Global Market to have your portrait taken and talk about beauty as you see it and its place in our neighborhood.
Along with your beautiful self, bring your favorite painting, drawing, photograph, video, dress, stuffed animal, etc, along with you! In time the accumulated portraits will be made into a book; a document of the Phillips/Powderhorn neighborhoods, its people, and their cherished objects.
An on-going neighborhood portraiture project by the Shoebox Gallery, the results will be made into a book. Participants will be given a free print of their portrait!
