The Mirror Project
12-7 p.m.
Student Center, Ballrooms

The Mirror Project is an art exhibit that challenges people to think about how they perceive themselves.
"What do you see when you look in the mirror?”
Students, faculty and staff were asked the question above and responses were funny, sad, shocking and everything in between. Using diverse mediums, these statements were put onto mirrors. When viewing this exhibit, we hope that participants look deep inside themselves and truly reflect on their feelings towards their bodies, as well as look beyond their reflection in the mirror.
The Mirror Project was created in 2008 by the Office of Health Promotion at Montclair State University.
