At the time of the exhibition, the Creative Alliance served three constituencies: advancing the work of its artist membership, offering educational programs for community youth, and acting as an economic catalyst for its neighborhood (Highlandtown) through its public programs. These constituencies—artists, youth, and businesses in the neighborhood—were represented in the project’s three rotations. For Being Seen 1, young people from a Highlandtown youth center created painted chairs symbolic of who they are. In Being Seen 2, members of the Creative Alliance showed chosen works of art in a conventional group exhibition. And for Being Seen 3, owners of area sole-proprietorships were asked to select objects emblematic of their profession. Beyond Peter’s paintings, the common thread of each installation was advancing and celebrating the identity and value of each featured person.
