NASTY WOMEN PORTLAND
My piece signifies the frustration and hardships that encompass being a woman in today's society. It symbolizes all that is true in our justice system—control, power, and the all too common theme of objectifying a woman's body. In a time of social turmoil, empowerment for women has never been so evident. Here we can prove to remain strong, humble, passionate people who will not step out of the way of freedom and equality. This group exhibition demonstrates solidarity among artists who identify as Nasty Women in the face of threats, to roll back women's rights. Proceeds from sales of each piece benefit the SAFE HARBOR ART PROGRAM, a division of SAFES (Salvation Army Female Emergency Center). SAFES empowers women to move from homelessness to housing. This is a past event, which ran through March 10, 2016 at Killjoy Collective PDX.
