Portrait Exhibit Features Maryhurst Art

Believing in the affirming power of art, Maryhurst Academy has completed a portrait painting project with students that’s exhibiting this month at the Art Council of Southern Indiana.

Entitled “Kentuckiana Inspired, Building Bridges,” the portrait project paired community leaders from the Louisville area with students at Maryhurst, each of whom had the opportunity to have a conversation with their subject that served as inspiration for the portrait.

The leaders—which included small business owners, school board administrators, local journalists and more—used the conversation to provide mentorship, validation and encouragement to the students. Subjects fielded questions about what it means to be a successful leader in the community.

The final portraits include a statement that the artist found particularly memorable alongside the likeness of the subject.

The exhibit opened on November 15, 2017 at 6:00pm. Student artists were on site to show off their finished work.
