less than 10 days left for Retratos Compartidos / Shared Portraits

Kevin Krapf's participatory exhibit, Retratos Compartidos / Shared Portraits will close at the Artisphere on August 18.  That means that you have less than 10 days left to get hung in Artisphere. Krapf has been doing artistic re-interpretations of selected portraits.  One participant's favorite college professor was transformed into a painting that seems to allude to a statue of Socrates. Socrates was executed because he asked too many questions.  Draw your own conclusions.

Thanks for the comment. The image is Plato, referencing the scholar/teacher relation he had with Socrates and the process of learning about meaning in art.
