I have been BUSY, hence the blog silence over here. I am launching City of Hidden Figures a public art program that celebrates local hidden female figures through murals, statues, and the renaming of streets. It's been an incredible journey so far with a trip to LA to the USOW spring conference where we first launched our project with a temporary installation. We are also becoming a non profit. City of Hidden Figures is currently recognized by the state of Maine as a non profit and we are working on our federal application. Once we have the federal status we can't wait to curate public art in sister cities around the country by local female-identifying artists.
I am painting the inaugural mural for City of Hidden Figures. You can read more about it here. Please help us reach our fundraising goal HERE. And visit our website to sign up for our newsletter and to nominate a hidden figure in your home town!
