Co-Chairs Chelsea Higgs Wise and Ngiste Abebe have chosen the theme “Truthsayer” for Intersectional Wonder Womxn Art Show Vol. 2. We encourage artists from around the country to submit their artwork that’s inspired by the theme. All are welcome!
“Truthsayer honors the courage and conviction it takes for womxn to proclaim their truth and demand to be heard. When we speak truth to power, womxn forge communities and uncover strength. Truthsayer builds on generations of wisdom from womxn activists and artists like Sojourner Truth, Audre Lorde, and Nayyirah Waheed. It’s our hope that another generation of artists will join us in celebrating the power of our truth in the art they submit for this year’s art show benefiting Safe Harbor” –Ngiste Abebe, Co-Chair
