FAMOUS is an art project by portrait artist Deb Marett, inspired by the poem “Famous” by Naomi Shihab Nye.

This project seeks to redefine the traditional meaning of ‘famous,’ as the media continually distracts us with information about people who are not in our immediate sphere of contact. Why do we so avidly read the details of people’s lives who are athletes, musicians, or reality tv personas? Who in your own corner of the world has done something to make a difference–either in your life, or someone else’s? And what have you yourself done?

FAMOUS celebrates the everyday heroes in all of us.
