What is the meaning of the portrait stamped on the first-floor hall of the Art building?In the spring of 2018, the portrait titled “Project Adriana” was stamped on the wall by BFA student, Cynthia Juarez. It is a portrait of Adriana Paola Espinoza, a friend of Juarez, and one of many immigrant students experiencing the uncertainty of opportunities in the United States. Adriana was born in Mexico and is currently an undergraduate student studying in Chicago. Adriana, like thousands of young people who were brought to the United States with their families, they feel powerless. By the repeated image of Adriana on the wall, the artist hoped to empower them. “I wanted to give my friend and other immigrant students living in the United States a sense of power,” said Juarez. “There is power in numbers, and with my background in printmaking, I wanted to multiply Adrian’s portrait by stamping it in silver on the wall that was painted black.”
