#WhyYouMatter Portraits


The Photo Wall was #whyyoumatter’s founding project. Planned and facilitated with the help of numerous students and staff, we produced a school-wide public art display of 11x17 black-and-white photographs. The display was comprised of more than 1,000 pictures, each of which captured students’ responses to the question “Why do you matter?”.
