Express Your Selfie - Mixed Media exhibition
The Jacksonville downtown library teams with Art with a Heart in Healthcare to present a photography and mixed-media exhibition featuring the work of talented patient artists from Wolfson Children’s Hospital. The exhibition is on display in the teen section of the library. Patients collaborated with artists-in-residence to create revealing and modern takes on the self-portrait while being treated in the hospital.
Express Your #Selfie provides an innovative look at the highly popular concept of the “selfie” through the eyes of hospitalized children. The Art with a Heart team encouraged these young artists to expand upon the basic photographic self-portrait, revealing something more personal. Their artistic additions help transcend their hospital experience while promoting a level of self-confidence and self-awareness.
This program is sponsored in part by Wolfson Children's Hospital and Florida Department of State Division of Cultural Affairs.
