HUB Galleries Opens New Portrait Exhibition ‘True Likeness’
The HUB-Robeson Galleries’ newest installation, “True Likeness”, opened on February 4 and features portraits from 18 diverse contemporary artists across the United States. The exhibition will remain open through March 20.
The portraits included in the exhibition take on many forms of media, ranging from photography to sculpture. The exhibition aims to highlight artists’ diversity and celebrate diversity and culture within the United States.
“Portraits serve as expressions of identity, popular taste, social standing, and as documents of who, when, and where,” the exhibition flyer reads. “Representing one’s self in the best light or seeing others in understandable terms are motives behind why we record images of each other…”
The exhibition was created over the past two years and debuted first at Davidson College. Now, it’s free and available to all at Penn State. Be sure to check out the works featured in “True Likeness,” located in HUB Gallery and Art Alley.
