Cell Phone Paintings: FREE (part 2)

cellpaintings1

I spent the month of May painting pictures based on people’s cell phone photos in the Portland Building Installation Space.  You can see the first half of the photos here.  Through the Regional Arts and Culture Council, I offered my services for free.  The Portland Building is a busy municipal office building, so I happily received many requests for paintings.

Each painting is on a 4″ x 6″ piece of paper, and participants picked up their paintings during the final week of the installation (you can see some are missing in these photos).  More information on the project here.

The cool things that happened:

  • I met a ton of people and got to see what they like to photograph with their cell phones, and then I got to share with everyone what their coworkers, building-mates, and community members photograph
  • Cell phone images from the general public ended up on a gallery wall
  • Many people visited every day to see that day’s new paintings
  • For a large number of participants, this was their first “commission” of original art
