CONCEPT: Washington Park has a high a population of prostitutes who frequent alleyways and stoops of buildings. Take a Look is an artistic intervention that invites a broader segment of the community to self-reflect on issues in the neighborhood.
DESCRIPTION: A portrait gallery of mirrored faces with brightly colored, crazy, locale hairstyles was installed on a building currently in disuse.The portraits were mounted on a wall where viewers can try them on for size. In addition to the fun of new hairstyles, viewers may use the mirrors to consider themselves and their role in the community.
