Not Self Portraits: A collaboration between Laylah Ali and students from Martin Luther King Jr. School
Not Self Portraits features artwork by Massachusetts-based artist Laylah Ali. The exhibit includes artwork by Ali as a well artwork created in collaboration with MLK Jr. School students in Ms. Johnson (5th grade) and Ms. McCarthy’s (4th grade) classes. The MLK Jr. School students participated in a workshop led by Ali and assisted by Portland State University students to create the portraits. This catalog was created as an accompaniment to the exhibition of that work at King School Museum of Contemporary Art (KSMoCA).
