Black Lives Matter Portrait Project Invites Awareness, Discussion

In collaboration with student leaders, Loomis Chaffee’s Visual Arts Department created the Black Lives Matter Self Portraiture project this fall, inviting the school community’s Black students, staff, faculty, and alumni to contribute their portraits and personal reflections to the project, which is on display in public spaces across campus and in an online gallery on the school website.

"We're using the example of portraiture as a way to humanize Black lives and to bring awareness to the Black Lives Matter movement so that we will all be engaged in this discussion and continue to focus our actions and efforts towards creating a more anti-racist community," commented senior Simone Moales in a video interview about the project.
