THE WOMANIST MOVEMENT

BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN WHITE WOMEN AND WOMEN OF COLOR

Join nine premiere women artists as they provoke conversations about racial constructs and historical dis-empowerment of women with the stroke of a brush, camera, needle and in clay. Invited to examine their own attitudes of entitlement and victimization, their art represents those choices.

Yvonne van Eijden, Velma Morris, Mary Barr Rhodes, Cynthia Lockhart, Tina Gutierrez, Edith Susarret Marrero, Gloria McConnaghy, Gabrielle McFarland, Jan Wiesner
