artistic noise: art from the juvenile detention system and beyond Self Portraits
Spectrum Detention
Artist: Tyrara


For this project, girls at Spectrum Detention created larger than life self-portraits in oil on canvas. As part of the project, participants viewed and discussed Margo Humphrey's self-portrait called "The History of Her Life Written across Her Face." Participants were encouraged to use their self-portrait to convey an emotion, feeling, or personal history.
