WOMEN PRESENT
A Feminist Art Show
Shinbone Alley, Presented by the Culture Project
Sept. 21, 6:30 p.m., 45 Bleecker Street, corner of Lafayette Street

"Women Present" is part of the citywide, month-long Impact Festival, and the Culture Project's monthly UnfinishedWorks salon series.

'Women Present' is the second show by the Women's Art Collective, a group of emerging, NewYork-based artists who have come together as a community of feminists and friends to be a source of creative inspiration, to encourage one another's visions and to collectively negate the tendency to silence and second-guess ourselves. Personal and political are intertwined in this artistic event comprised of still image, film, performance and dance.

UnfinishedWorks regularly features the work of emerging artists across disciplines. In September and October, in concert with the IMPACT festival, UnfinishedWorks is curated by Zoeann Murphy of the Bread and Roses Cultural Arm of 1199SEIU, and artist Molly Stinchfield.

Bread & Roses (www.bread-and-roses.com) is the not-for-profit cultural arm of New York's Health and Human Service Union, 1199/SEIU. Bread and Roses was founded in 1979 as a cultural resource for union members and students in New York City who would otherwise have little access to the arts. Special emphasis is given to programs that signify and interpret their history while generating new artistic expression.
