While photographing portfolios to digitize the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Art's permanent collection, Ana Vizcarra Rankin (BA-Art History '10) had the idea to begin her own portfolio project, Feast.
"I reached out to a few colleagues about the idea and received a very positive response," Rankin said. "Once the project started moving forward, I found myself in a curatorial position, which I am attempting to fulfill to the best of my abilities."
Each artist that Rankin reached out to will be contributing one image to the portfolio.
"I chose the artists that I invited because I see a common thread in their work. Amazingly, I reached out to a dozen artists, and they all agreed to participate," Rankin said. "Since then, we have all been promoting the project within our own networks including social media, print media, and word of mouth."
