                How Do You Create a Portrait of a City? 

 

We encourage you to think experimentally and critically about the nature of portraiture and welcome submissions in any medium - drawing, painting, sound, photography, animation, film, sculpture, installations, and digital art. We want it all! 

Here are some questions from the Teen Board to help get you started: 

  • Is a city defined by its buildings and architecture, or by the people who live there?
  • What are the layers to New Orleans' history?
  • Do you see yourself reflected in the city, and where? If not, why?
  • What is the relationship between artists and the city?
  • Who is our city for?
  • Our culture is infinite and crosses every border. How, then, do we define it?

Submission Requirements 

  • Submission must include a high resolution, well lit photograph of your artwork
  • Dimensions must be listed in inches (width x height)
  • Submission must include your name, grade, school, email address and phone number 
  • Please include the medium (for ex., oil on canvas)
  • You must be a highschool student                
* You may submit up to three pieces. 

SUPPORT

Education and Public Programming support is provided by Nancy Aronson and Virginia Besthoff, City of New Orleans | Edward Wisner Donation, The Hearst Foundations, The Helis Foundation, and the J. Edgar Monroe Foundation.
