Search for 'beards' continues through Aug.
Cooper is looking for individuals with distinctive facial hair to create “fine art character study portraits” to create a fund-raising exhibit to help the homeless in local communities.
A session with Cooper for this project costs $25 and all of the proceeds will be divided among the three agencies Beth-El Center, Columbus House and Spooner House.
Each participant who is photographed will receive a design consultation and portrait session with Cooper and then will be judged by three judges to vote for their favorite image. A fourth vote will be a people’s choice vote from the attendees. He will be doing sessions through the end of August.
The winner and their guest will be invited to dinner with Cooper at a local restaurant where the image will be hung on display. There will be “Best Beard” trophies for first, second, and third place winners.
