In celebration of Women’s History Month, Moore College of Art and Design is teaming up with Mt. Airy Art Garage to present The Gender Weave Project, an exhibition by Moore College of Art students and a number of professors at the all-female college. Appropriately, Moore is the only women’s visual arts school in the country.
The exhibition will feature a variety of pieces of art that focus on the female identity as a whole. Themes throughout the exhibition include gender roles, the artist’s relationships with identity, social norms and the goal of overcoming prejudice and misconceptions.
The exhibition will run through Sunday, March 29 at Mt. Airy Art Garage. Admission to the exhibition is completely free. Take note: Mt. Airy Art Garage is open Wednesday through Sunday.
On Sunday, March 8, Mt. Airy Art Garage will celebrate International Women’s Day with a special exhibition-related panel, Weaving Equality — Exploring Gender & The Arts. The panel will call on artists and members of the community to discuss gender roles, women’s equality and sexuality in their own lives and work. A donation of $10 is suggested.
