Labeled - Paul Richmond Studio


Regular price $0

Artists Melissa Forman and Paul Richmond created this installation at Cornell University to represent the way labels, both positive and negative, can become a part of one’s identity. The faces depicted in the mural are portraits of young people who have participated in You Will Rise programming, constructed entirely out of Post-It notes. Many of the Post-Its contain words – both the negative taunts of bullies and positive, self-affirming adjectives – submitted by Cornell students and from around the world through the You Will Rise website.
