What makes a face unique? Artist Chanel Thervil makes portraits that use many patterns, textures, and materials on wood that highlight special qualities about each person. Visitors can make mixed media portraits inspired by her work.

Chanel Thervil is a Haitian American artist and educator obsessed with contemporary art, pop culture, and corny jokes. Upon roaming the halls of NYC museums as teen, she often found herself wondering why she felt so out of place. Fueled by her lack of satisfaction with the narrow range of representations of people of color on both sides of the canvas, Chanel decided to pursue a career in art. Her love for talking about art, doing research and dragging loved ones to museums that they would never walk into otherwise led her to completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting at Pace University and a Master's Degree in Art Education at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
