YWCA Cambridge, 7 Temple St., Cambridge, MA
September 3 - 29, 2016
The art show features mixed media works by Jennifer Weigel, a multidisciplinary visual artist based in Somerville, MA, whose works for this show are heavily influenced by Miriam Shapiro’s Femmage and Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party. The show includes an advocacy campaign to raise awareness of the need for feminine care products & diapers among women’s shelters and public spaces. Bring a donation of a new, unused product for YWCA Cambridge and enter the raffle to win an original artwork(s). All show attendees are welcome to enter once without donating anything; donors who bring products for YWCA Cambridge can enter once more per item donated.
There will be a "Hey, Sugar!” closing candy reception on Thursday, Sept. 29 from 7 - 9 PM in conjunction with the raffle of artworks which will happen at 8:30 PM. Ticket holders need not be present at the raffle to win but it is highly recommended since artworks will be offered by choice to the winning ticket holders present. Weigel will raffle off one artwork for every 10 items donated to YWCA, while supplies last. Raffle items must be picked up in person on Sept. 29 or Sept. 30 or be forfeited.
Please don't forget to save the date, October 13, 2016 and purchase tickets or sponsorships!
