“Lifetimes,” one of the portraits included in Mario Moore's portraiture project

Princeton University portraits give campus workers the spotlight

Jan. 14, 2020

The halls of many colleges and universities display paintings of school presidents, donors and famous alumni. But at Princeton University, a gallery of portraits presents campus workers in a whole new light.

On campus, the most popular man may be Howard Sutphin in dining, who is also a staple at Princeton games. But now he's off the sidelines and center stage, in portraits of campus workers by visiting art fellow Mario Moore.

"These people are some of the most important people on campuses that deserve to be seen and seen on the same walls in the same way as these figures historically have been seen at institutions," Moore said.
