Marlo Marrero has facilitated an engaging community based, public art project with a group of young photo students (girls ages 10-17) in Hartford, CT. This series of portraits of their Heroes is posted on their website Act Like You Care as well as displayed on a Hartford public bus. “Hartford is a classic small city of contemporary America, bustling by day and struggling by night. Hartford has a unique population of predominately Caribbean and African American peoples. And unfortunately the art scene in Hartford does not reflect this…People will view photographs and text of and about important, but not necessarily “well known” people from our neighborhoods within Hartford and the surrounding communities.”
