Artworks by Jill Greenberg and Lissa Rivera are included in the Humble Arts Foundation online group exhibition On Beauty. From the essay by Roula Seikaly:

‘On Beauty’ may be the most open-ended call for images that Humble Arts Foundation founders Jon Feinstein and Amani Olu have put out into the world. Other calls, and the resulting exhibitions, have been shaped by more narrow parameters; for example, ‘Radical Color’ suggested color photography’s explosive potential, and ‘‘Roid Rage’ placed Polaroid pictures in contemporary practice as more than sweetly nostalgic artifacts. As guest co-curator, I was excited, and a bit terrified, by what would be submitted in response. Without surprise, that excitement was well warranted. The variety of imagery and processes reflects the nearly uncontainable breadth of images that their makers define as representing “beauty.”
