Fiber artwork by talented artists that identify as women will be on display at all three locations during this opening event. Feminist DJ Univers-AL will be performing at Aeronaut, and Feral Jenny, Ellen Siberian-Tiger, and Dent will be performing at Arts at the Armory. It will be a kickass night full of friends, fun, feminism, music, & art…you won’t want to miss it. A portion of proceeds from the evening will also be donated to a local women’s shelter that offers art therapy for its residents. So come hang with us on the 14th and and support local artists and support your community!
