The Art of the Selfie

PAPA’s Visual Art Department is proud to present our newest Pop-Up Gallery:

The Art of the Selfie.


PAPA Visual Artists created self-portraits inspired by one of the most famous artists in the world: Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). Frida Kahlo’s intimate self-portraits included personal, cultural, and historical details from her life.


Our artists included their own personal, cultural, and/or historical details from their own lives in order to share their identities. Be sure to check out the gallery wall in the West hallway, in between Room 19 & Room 17.
