Ben Volta:
Visual artist Ben Volta (Philadelphia, PA) worked with a group of 15 pre-teens from the Margaret S. Sterck School to create artworks that explore the relationship between assigned and chosen identities. With the Sterck School art teacher Lynn Hessler acting as an interpreter Volta guided the group in creating abstracted self-portraits made with a combination of hand drawn visual elements, mixed media objects, and computer generated digital images.
According to Volta, "The Sterck School has provided me an opportunity to appreciate a new culture, and I am excited that there is a sense of eagerness and curiosity about the exploration of contemporary art. This is a unique and exciting project to do with these children. Through his innovative installation, Volta hopes to transform the gallery spaces into "creative and energized environments."
Ben Volta (Philadelphia, PA) holds a certificate from The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and a BFA from the University of Pennsylvania. He has created and exhibited education-based collaborative projects in partnership with The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Fleisher Art Memorial, The Philadelphia Arts in Education Partnership, The School District of Philadelphia, and many other organizations throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Volta is the recipient of numerous Arts in Education Grants from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, is a member of Tim Rollins and K.O.S. in NYC, and is a fellow at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists in Philadelphia. He has recently exhibited at Pentimenti Gallery in Philadelphia, and participated in the exhibition Tim Rollins and K.O.S.: A History at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia.

Ben Volta and Students from the Margaret S. Sterck School for the Deaf
Ben Volta partnered with students from the Margaret S. Sterck School for the Deaf during his eight-week DCCA Art & Community Visual Arts Residency. As an artist and educator, Volta states that he collaborates on projects by conceptualizing an art idea and exploring "how each contributing participant might incorporate his or her own unique vision into that idea. Volta facilitated the students' exploration of concepts of identity and representation by asking them to consider and select objects and symbols that reflected their self-perceptions and interests.
