The pieces in the exhibition were chosen through submissions addressing the summer initiative – embracing female impact symbolically and or figuratively. In a city and in spaces controlled by institutions, SaveArtSapce is taking control and creating physical change.
The featured talented artists of the movement include: Elise Peterson, Lissa Rivera, Beth Brown, Sara Meadows, Nina Summer, Allie Kelley, Jess Whittam, Fanny Allié, Mónica Félix, and Julie Orlick. And if you’re interested seeing their work somewhere rather than a billboard, the same selected artists will be showcased at The Storefront Project, with an opening reception on July 7th at 6 pm. Additionally, the project would be nowhere without the talented curator involved with The Future is Female. The all-female curators include: Alyse Archer-Coité, Marie Tomanová, Sandra Hong, Brittany Natale, and Meryl Meisler. If you’re interested in seeing all of the work submitted to this great cause, you can check that out on SaveArtSpace’s here.
With organizations and exhibits like this one, communities can gain broader artistic capabilities and appreciation. Especially in today’s political climate – art allows expression of progressive social change and commentary. If you’re in New York this summer – maybe look up at what was once annoying billboards that crowded the air and you might find an empowering piece of art!
