Opening Reception -- "Mean Girls" at SPACE Gallery

  • February 22, 2013 · 6:00 PM

"Mean Girls" examines the reality that bullying among girls in America has become an epidemic in our society. This remarkable exhibition is a springboard to gain awareness, encourage dialogue and promote positive social change.

"Mean Girls" is comprised of 10 nationally known artists, including Traci Molloy, a Brooklyn-based artist and education activist. For over 10 years, her artwork has examined loss in relation to adolescent violence and bullying, with an emphasis on youth who've committed suicide after being bullied or were murdered by their peers.

This traveling exhibition is partnered with the non-profit organization: Strong Women, Strong Girls, and will debut in Pittsburgh, PA.

The "Mean Girls" exhibit is free and will be on display from February 22, 2013 - April 28, 2013

The opening reception is also free and is likely to include complimentary beer/refreshments.

    Please note that while the opening reception is from 5:30-9 PM, it is highly recommended that Meetups arrive between 6-7:45 PM as this will be the busiest time in the gallery. If you are relatively new to Meetup and don't recognize anyone, please speak to the gallery attendant at the desk and asked to be introduced to the curator (Jill) or myself (Mark).

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
