With today's technology, many people introduce themselves to the world by posting self-portraits online. WRTI's Susan Lewis considers how artists represent themselves.

She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and contributes weekly intermission interviews for The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
