Through independent group actions, Inside Out posts large-scale portraits in public spaces all over the world. As their website states, the project is "a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art."
BYFA's theme is B Seen B Heard. In the fall 2018 workshop B Seen B Heard: Group Action Photography, BYFA fellows collected portraits of Baltimoreans of all ages and neighborhoods, and asked them to share their thoughts on any Baltimore subject that compelled them: politics, music, religion, art, work, play, inspirations and aspirations. This website celebrates the community the fellows discovered.
At a public event on Saturday, April 27, 2019, poster-size portraits were pasted to exterior building walls at
N. Carey and Baker Streets in West Baltimore (map), where they’ll stay indefinitely.
Please visit and see the photo mural in person!
New participants are welcome on the website, though portraits can no longer be added to the outdoor mural.

B Seen B Heard is a co-production of Baltimore Youth Film Arts and Harambee Center, and is made possible by the support of Johns Hopkins University and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
