In Philly #artnews : The artist Amy Sherald has adorned the side of a @Target store in Philadelphia with a huge mural depicting a local resident, 19-year-old Najee Spencer-Young. Like Amy Sherald's famous #portrait of former First Lady Michelle Obama, this Philadelphia mural #challenges ideas about #identity and the public gaze and asks “Who is allowed to be comfortable in public spaces? Who is represented in art? How can one woman’s portrait begin to shift that experience for others?” - via @theartnewspaper.official #philly #Philadelphia #art #phillyartscene #phillyart #amysherald #michelleobama #NajeeSpencerYoung #streetart #artmural #blue #publicgaze #gaze #publicart #womanartist #womenartist #femaleartists #femaleartist #goodnews #happynews #beautiful @asherald #modernart #contemporaryart #target @muralarts
