When Caged Birds Sing
Here is a current topic that is sure to grab your interest! When Caged Birds Sing: opening reception: Ann Weiner Free This exhibition shares the real-life stories of eight courageous women who each endured, and survived, abuse that is rarely discussed openly. Through assemblage art, Weiner thrusts domestic abuse, sex trafficking, date rape, kidnapping, transphobia, female genital mutilation, honor killings, the denial of educational opportunities and the sale of child brides into the light in an effort to advocate for women's rights and gender empowerment.. 5:30 to 7 pm. The exhibition will be on view January 18 through February 10, 2018. “I tell the stories of these incredible women in the hope that their voices will be heard, their suffering will be seen, and that more of the world will rise up to prevent the abuses they have endured, which are still inflicted on their mothers, sisters, and daughters.” Ann Weiner Parking is available in the Housatonic garage, let them ‘now you were there for the Gallery exhibit when exiting.
