Media Advisory: Inside Out public art project features giant faces

 “Inside out: Wake,” a temporary public art installation, is on display on Wake Forest’s Manchester Plaza through April 4.

Students organizing “Inside out: Wake” chose five upperclassmen from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds who also “embody the well-rounded Wake Forest community and…Pro Humanitate ideals.” The faces of the five students chosen are displayed in a 70′ x 10′ print as an artistic expression of the Wake Forest experience. 

The purpose of the project is to encourage students to see the campus community through lenses different from their own while inviting dialogue that supports an inclusive environment.

International “Inside Out” is a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. Everyone is challenged to use black and white photographic portraits to discover, reveal and share the untold stories and images of people around the world. The exhibitions are documented, archived and viewable virtually at Inside Out Project.

 Student organizers, Kovi Konowieck and Lindsay Hudson Ortyn, are available for interviews.
