Join us as the Union Art Gallery proudly hosts a special exhibition of The Exquisite Uterus Project, a nationwide collaborative art project facilitated by Helen Klebesadel and Allison Gates, two Wisconsin artists, feminists, and curators.
The Project features more than 100 artists nationwide who felt the need to react and creatively respond to what is being called the 'War on Women'. This exhibition will feature 100+ fiber artworks, a print portfolio curated by artist Meredith Stern entitled This is an Emergency!, as well as a handful of installation artists from the area responding to our current political climate surrounding women's reproductive rights. Come to the Opening Reception on September 20th for an opportunity to hear the delightful musical political banter of the Raging Grannies at 6pm.
This exhibition and related programming is made possible by the collaborative efforts of the UWM Union Art Gallery, UWM Women's Resource Center, UWM Women's Studies Program, Reproductive Justice Collective of Milwaukee, and others.
