What is the story of you? MOPA’s 10th Annual Youth Exhibition will focus on the theme of personal identity and self-portraiture. In the age of the selfie, how can you use photography to express who you are and what you care about? Encourage your students to explore new and interesting ways to tell their stories. Students may use photography or video to share their interpretation of what a self-portrait is or can be.
What is required? One very well done self portrait that express who you are, an artist statement of 50 word or less and completed MOPA application. You will present this as your final on Thursday, May 28th.
What is an artist statement? An artist statement is a paragraph or two written by the artist that describes his or her artwork. It might include details about their photograph, someone who inspires them, why they like photography or even their goals as an artist and photographer. Write below or attach typed statement to this form. Must be fewer than 50 words.
