March is Women’s History Month…. I will commemorate the month of March by dedicating it to all the women that inspire me, the women that made and continue to make history, the movers and shakers of today and tomorrow…
March 12th, 2010 “ FEMICIDE” Art exhibit curated and hosted by Mia Roman. Over 10 established visual artists, over 30 pieces of art, 3 amazing seasoned poets and music to move your souls by an amazing DJ. The artwork is as diverse and graphic as the crime. They will depict violence against women in a form that has never been seen before. The colors drip from the canvas as did the tears of the abused. A show not to be missed, so be there and be aware!!!
