Statewide Tour of “Women Against Hate, United by Love” Art Exhibition coming to Appleton!
The art exhibition, created by Wisconsin artists Kelly Parks Snider, Rachel Griffin, and Leigh Garcia, showcases powerful stories told by Appleton and Milwaukee women leaders impacted by bigotry, intolerance, and racism. Some of the artists and women leaders will participate in an important panel discussion that will highlight their experiences and priorities as trailblazers in the state.
The exhibit is engaging and thought-provoking, meant to provide a meaningful and hopeful community experience for all who attend.
The exhibition is free and open to the public and will remain at The Draw until May 13. Artists and the exhibition subjects will be available for interview before and after panel discussion.
Program on opening night begins at 7 p.m.
After the exhibition’s run in Milwaukee, “Women Against Hate, United by Love” will tour statewide, aligning with women and partnering organizations to expand exhibition content, adding local stories and artwork. These expanded and localized “Women Against Hate, United by Love” exhibitions will be created and staged with the goals in mind of unifying communities, heightening public awareness of local social challenges, and creating change.
