AAC at Avenue 50 Studio: The Yearbook Series

Works by Lynn Heinz

October 14 – November 11, 2023

Opening Saturday, October 14th, from 3:00 to 6:00pm


“Everyone has their own memories and feelings about their high school experience. I was not particularly happy at that time in my life. I was anxious, shy, and uncomfortable in my own skin. I always felt unable to meet the expectations that were required in order to be socially successful.

With this project, I have revisited that time from the point of view of where I am now.
Some of these portraits are from my own senior yearbook and others I randomly selected from the internet.

They are not nostalgic pictures, nor do they demonize the people portrayed. By looking
at them objectively, I can see how I have changed and grown.

I am able to see that they were just kids, just like me, with the same fears and insecurities. I can affirm that my journey is taking me in the direction I need to travel. I
hope that the viewer can look at these paintings and consider their own journey and
whether it’s where they want to be going.” – Lynn Heinz
