ABOUT THE EVENT
On May 2, 2018, from 7pm to 11pm an Art Show benefiting Safe Harbor will be held at The Hof Garden (“The Hof”) in Richmond. Its theme is Intersectional Wonder Women and the show aims to encourage women to be their own superheroes. The art will celebrate all who identify as women and will represent a diversity of experience.
This exhibition aims to raise awareness and foster understanding of the challenges and obstacles that women have historically faced, also to confront the permutations of these that we encounter, today. We are intersectional in that we honor ALL experiences of womanhood. We realize that traits such as age, race, religion, sexual orientation and body-type impact our experiences. That health, ability and socioeconomics may burden or ease a woman’s journey, influence her perspective, and even dictate the roles/identities she chooses and embraces, those she merely tolerates, and those she strains to transcend.
We hope to inspire everyone- but women, in particular, by highlighting the physical, intellectual or creative prowess of those who we consider to be our female “superheroes”. The jury we have carefully selected reflects this. They are women who lead, educate, and innovate. Each creative and resourceful, all visionaries.
20% of each art sale will go to Safe Harbor, a nonprofit agency in Henrico County that empowers survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and sex trafficking by providing them with all of the resources they need to transform their lives and forge healthy relationships.
EVENT LISTING: Intersectional Wonder Women Art Show at The Hof benefiting Safe Harbor on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 from 7pm – 11pm. With each art sale, the 20% commission goes directly to Safe Harbor.
