UND Art Collections features contemporary portraiture at the Empire

The UND Art Collections exhibit, #InYourFace – Reflections on Contemporary Portraiture, will be on display at the Empire Arts Center, 415 DeMers Ave., through July 19.

This student-led art exhibition features several examples of portraiture from the University’s Art Collections. From 19thc. caricatures to the modern day concept of the selfie, viewers will enjoy a fascinating selection of art while quite literally becoming part of the exhibition. Although the hashtags and wit will keep the viewer amused – the effort and intellect applied to this exhibition by the spring 2019 Intro to Fine Arts Honors class will lead the audience on a though provoking journey.
