October 15 @ 1:00-2:00 PM | Selfie Image: The Power of Portraits

In a world where we can snap a selfie, add a filter, and share on social media at the touch of a button, humans seem more obsessed than ever with presenting a perfect version of themselves. But people have been concerned about self-image throughout history! Join us for a journey of discovery through self-portraits, group portraits, idealized portraits and of course, the perfect selfie. On this interactive live tour we will discuss how people have historically chosen to put their best foot forward and the ways perception still influence us today.
