Educator Karla Faber led students to create dynamic mixed-media self-portraits, inspired by the work of Belgian surrealist artist Rene Magritte. The vibrant and imaginative works on view in Inside and Out include objects that each artist identifies with. Artists completed their works by considering descriptive words and imagery to create a sense of place.
