Welcome to Main School Irvington!

Among the proposals of the Welcoming Schools program, a project of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the teachers of Main Irvington School chose the work Welcoming Hands, inspired by Humanae and created with their students a collaborative art piece that celebrates inclusion. With this installation of hands of different skin colors and welcome messages, the students worked on a visual interpretation of their community that represented them individually and collectively. Angelica Dass visited the school to share with them the result of the project.

Angélica's visit further inspired our students to consider how they are kind and respectful of our many identities

About Humanae

Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion.  It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
