ArtsKC Regional Arts Council has announced the latest round of Inspiration Grant recipients and I am honored to say that I am one of the artists selected. This grant will be for a specific project titled,
Femin • Is: Portrait of Kansas City Feminism Then and Now
Femin • Is will be an equal part local history project, part contemporary examination, and part visual exhibition. The Inspiration Grant Funding will enable Rachelle Gardner-Roe to interview artists active during the Women’s Liberation movement of the 1970’s in the Kansas City area as well as contemporary artists working with an evolving definition of feminism. This process will culminate in an exhibition of collaborative portraits, envisioned for Women’s History Month in March of 2017. Fusing emotional, political, and theoretical concerns with the the artist’s creative process, this project endeavors to capture personal histories and share contemporary perspectives while engaging an often charged aspect of our culture.
Additional fundraising will be necessary for this project, so stay tuned for more on that in the coming months. But for now…
Thank you to the
for their continued support of my work and career!
