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.

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."
