Naperville Selfies are Art

Selfies: we’re all guilty of taking them but at the Naperville Art League, they are works of art.

Their latest exhibit, Selfie, explores the creative side of the trendy snapshot.

“We have member exhibits throughout the year and there is a specific theme for each of the exhibits and we tell participants that they don’t have to adhere to the theme if they don’t want to,” said Executive Director of the Naperville Art League, Deborah Venezia.

For this month’s theme, artists showed everything from their selfie snaps, to painted art work depicting how they see themselves. And this time around, a notable name around town decided to participate: Scott Huber.

His work, entitled “Burning Soul”, is made up of the charred remains of his tent, destroyed after an arsonist set it on fire back in July.

“There are a lot of pieces and there is a lot of Scott in that work. He’s kind of a fixture around town and I am sure many people know him. But he’s been here for quite some time,” said Venezia.

Selfies, the exhibit runs through September 22.
