The featured artists in About Face will discuss their processes and inspirations in Artists in Conversation at the museum on July 16, 2 p.m.-4 p.m.
Vermont Coronel, Renan Ortiz, Louie Talents and Alvin Zafra lent their old works and worked on new ones as well to create nontraditional portraitures with the use of new and unconventional media. Their works present images that ask the viewers to reexamine their idea of portraiture in light of today’s celebrity culture, identity theft, and avatars, among others.
On July 22, the museum will also conduct the Information Literacy and Inquiry seminar for public school teacher-librarians. For inquiries, call Fanny at 631-2417. Lopez Memorial Museum and Library is located at the ground floor of Benpres Building.
