Here's a bit about the exhibition in case you missed it......

The Girls' School was a multimedia fine art exhibition exploring the aggregate experiences of 5 artists. A four part interdisciplinary curriculum which included visual art, spoken work, music, and open mic, is an invitation to the community to look beneath the surface of what is called "gender politics" and to actively engage in the dialogue.

Curator, Rolando Chang Barrero of ActivistArtistA Gallery, provides the platform for featured artists include Alana DaCosta, Allison Kotzig, Dianne Rosenberg, Niki Lopez and Abby Funk to 
to share their collective experiences as women, as artists, as powerful advocates against the disregard of genders, but more importantly as human beings. 

This event marked the first of it's kind in the arts, the inclusion of trans-gender challenges for visibility in the arts and in our community. 

Gender is not just a biological definition: it also encompasses the idea of roles and identity in the community.

The question that ran through this exhibit was, "Are we are still falling short of the goal of true equality in today’s politically charged climate?"

The exhibition which set the stage for this dialogue provided an "open mic," for all to participate.
