A new juried competition featuring self-portraits by SLO County high school juniors and seniors is coming to the Central Coast. Hosted by the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, this exhibition, titled ME is WE, offers an opportunity for students to explore and reflect on how they see themselves and their classmates in today’s ever-expanding audiovisual world.
Organized by Jeffrey Bacon, a Central Coast local who spent three decades working in entertainment marketing, this competition seeks to make students more aware of the artistic values, image quality, creator’s rights, impact, and visual options possible. Students are challenged to improve the art of communicating by being introduced to trade standards and the professional expertise of a panel of judges. Final award winners will be selected by artist/animator Peter Hannan, the creator of Nickelodeon’s series “CatDog.”
March 6, 4 PM: Presentation by Peter Hannan. Free and open to the public.
March 6, 6 to 9 PM: Opening reception in conjunction with Art After Dark.
