Page Laughlin’s Community Coloring Book Project aims to engage members of a community by asking them to give their image to a community coloring book to reinforce a sense of belonging and inclusion. Not only do they contribute to the artwork, but they receive a drawing in return—a portrait of a community given in free exchange. The artist generates the coloring book images by taking photos, which are converted to hybrid between digitally-generated and hand-rendered. These drawings are edited with color removed and details preserved or deleted. The resulting drawing serves as both a portrait and an open template for one’s imagination to fill in—literally and metaphorically.
