Nevertheless She Persisted: Women of Courage, Tenacity, and Strength

A tradition at the Koehnline Museum is its annual collaboration with the Women and Gender Studies program to bear witness to the many creative women sharing their unique visions in the visual, literary, and performing arts. Nevertheless She Persisted focuses on the reserves of strength and resilience women display. We see it in the courage of women in emerging grassroots movements such as #MeToo, #BlackLivesMatter, the National Women’s Marches, the LGBTQIA+ and international human rights movements, and the remarkable young leaders of the Parkland survivors. It rises in the determination of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Dolores Huerta, Elizabeth Warren, and countless others trying to break the glass ceiling in U.S. government and politics.

IX Solo Exhibition: opens today

A while back, as part of Hispanic Heritage Month for the friends at OCCHA, RJ Thompson wrote and was awarded an International Institute grant from Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley to bring me to Department of Art • YSU to share my work with the students and City of Youngstown community in Ohio, USA. Today is the opening of my IX Solo Exhibition entitled “Life While You Wait”, a series of woodcuts on textiles, installations and artist’s books about embracing uncertainty as an expat, migrating and exploring the idea of moving through different continents.
