Nasty Women Art Exhibit
I can do that, I used to run a gallery.
That was Sigrid's response when she heard about the Nasty Women art movement. So she put out a call on Facebook to see if anyone else would be interested, and after receiving an overwhelming response she went for it. Six weeks later, 42 artists donated over 70 pieces of art and over $4,000 was raised for Planned Parenthood South Atlantic.
The Nasty Women Art Exhibit started as a single show in NYC and has grown into a global movement. As an opportunity to bring together artists and support organizations defending women and individual rights, there are over 40 art exhibits scheduled around the United States and abroad, with more being added.
The show was a huge success, with hundreds of people coming together to look at art, listen to music, and support an important organization in danger of under Trump's administration. More than the money raised, the show was a chance for people to come together in love and support of beliefs they hold dear that are now under attack (again), and another example that the #resist movement is strong in Charlottesville.
