In the Spring 2013 semester, Youth Insights Leaders worked with artist Fred Wilson on a series of photographs. Entitled Am I As Much As Being Seen?, the project was made possible by the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund. The exhibition was hung in the Illumination Fund offices where Leaders, Wilson, Whitney, and Illumination Fund staff and guests gathered to celebrate the Leaders and their artwork on Monday, April 29, 2013. Wilson spoke to the assembled guests about how much he enjoyed working with Youth Insights and mentioned his own memories of the Whitney as a teen.
For more details about the project with Wilson, check out a series of blog posts Leaders wrote over the course of the semester:
