As we approach our art exhibition opening for Innuendos, we asked the artists participating in the show, about the women in history that had inspired them. This series of Facebook informational posts strives to honor the women that so diligently and bravely lived and worked before us to bring knowledge, freedom, wisdom, awareness, justice, creativity, strength and a river of inspiration to the women today.
The Bronxite women participating in this exhibit wanted to honor these women as we celebrate Women History Month in March. These women represent different races, times in history, languages and geographical spaces but a significant part of the women that inspired us further more pursue the attainment of the Civil Rights and Justice for all members of this world.
Among the names mentioned by our artists we have: Ida B. Wells, Nina Simone, Toni Morrison, Elizabeth Catlett, Julia De Burgos, Olympia De Gouges, Louise Bourgeois, Minerva Mirabal and Simone de Beauvior!
