Friday September 20 - Friday October 11 Opening Reception: Friday Sept 20 5-8 PM Lecture: Thursday October 3 7 PM
The Union Art Gallery is proud to host the fourth exhibition of The Exquisite Uterus Project: Finding Equal Ground. This exhibition is a fantastic collection of 200+ fiber and mixed-media artworks from across the nation to give voice to the pressing issues of our time relating to reproductive healthcare for all women. This collaborative art project was started in early 2012 by feminist artists and curators Helen Klebesadel and Alison Gates in response to what is being called the ‘War on Women’. This iteration of The Exquisite Uterus Project will also feature a print collection regarding reproductive rights entitled “This is an Emergency!” curated by Justseeds Artist Collective artist Meredith Stern.
The opening reception will also feature a performance from The Raging Grannies at 6pm and a poetry reading at 7pm.
