Art Exhibit – Andrea Hall: The Billboards We Make of Ourselves
Hosted by: Petit Branch Library – Onondaga County Public Libraries
From the artist: At a very basic level, people wear the clothes they do because fashion is the most accessible way we reinforce and communicate our identities on a daily basis.

Although it is true that each shirt is mass produced, each one is unique in that it mirrors the individuality of the person wearing it. Shirts that say something about what a person stands for have their place and are a small, underutilized way to claim our voice in the world. This intrigues me.
