Art Project Turns UTTC Inside Out

Posted:

If you get a chance to go down to the Powwow this weekend, you'll see a lot of faces...

not just in the crowd but also in an art project.

A team of street artists have worked with cities all over the world using portraits to allow people to tell stories

It's called the Inside Out Project.

Volunteers in the community had their pictures taken, enlarged, and placed on the skills center building at United Tribes Technical College.

In just two years, the Inside Out Project has sent over 150,000 pictures around the world, in over 100 countries in 900 locations.

"You just use an image of a person and put it up. It starts dialogue and conversation and so for some places it's just an art project and other places it's a political statement. And we're not really involved in what you do with it. You send us a picture, we send it back to you. And then you place it up in a place of meaning," says Sol Guy, InsideOut Project.

This project is something anyone can be a part of at any time.
