Girl Noticed is a nationwide charcoal mural project aimed at bringing attention and awareness to the important role “the female” plays in our society. Artist Lori Pratico along with photographer Elizabeth Sanjuan will be traveling 50 states in 3 years to erect a series of detailed charcoal portraits, created as large exterior murals. Each mural will depict a female chosen from the area in which the mural will be painted. The murals will be crafted in charcoal. The idea is, weather conditions and time will naturally and quickly fade away these images. There is a window of time to “Notice” the artwork that has been created. This representing the message: “when an individuals talents, intelligence, and character are left unnoticed, they may fade away, disappear, and never be seen or developed into their full potential.” Each chosen will be photographed alongside their portrait and these photos will comprise a book to be published at the completion of the project.
Elizabeth will be photographing women that want to be noticed. She will take a headshot of you to place in a collage in the gallery for the Launch Party. All photos must be taken by December 4, 2014 in order to participate (we will continue in January for Mural launch). If you have been unnoticed, stop by Gallery 2014 and let her take your photo. If you cannot make it during Gallery 2014 business hours, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know what time you can stop by. For sponsorship opportunities please contact Gallery 2014.
