High school students' self portraits, inspired by Giacometti

Mallard Creek High School students visited the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art's "Giacometti: Memory and Presence" exhibit in January, looking for inspiration. 

The product--the students' self portraits in Giacometti's style--are hanging in the Ross Gallery at CPCC (Overcash Building, 1206 Elizabeth Ave.) through Aug. 5. There will be an opening reception today from 5:30-7 p.m.

Giacometti's spindly statues represent one of the go-to faces of modern art, though the Bechtler exhibit focused on the twentieth-century artist wholistically, including sculptures as well as paintings and drawings.
