The 2018 Art Start Portrait Project offers Black and Brown young men the opportunity to portray the complex narratives about their identities, asking the world to see them for how they choose to be seen. Art Start has collaborated with 18 youth from across New York City and Milwaukee to interpret and re-imagine visions of themselves. Through Art Start workshops, in-depth dialogue, interviews and photoshoots, participants explore personal identity and envision their lives beyond circumstance and stereotype. With support from world-class photographers, retouchers, stylists, and oral historians, those visions will come to life through a multimedia gallery exhibition and public campaign, #SeeMeBecause, this fall throughout New York City and Milwaukee, offering a platform for self-determination, representation, and freedom.|
