Coming Soon!

FIG has been busy! We have some events coming up in the next 6 months that we want to be sure you know about so you can join us.

First, on November 3, our Night Stand show will open at the Women's Museum of California, 2730 Historic Decatur Rd, #103, San Diego, California. This exhibit presents a series of night-stand sculptures and installations inspired by Judy Chicago's Dinner Party and the historic Womanhouse. Each nightstand suggests a woman, real or imagined, who sleeps next to it.

It opens to the public on November 4 from 6-9 PM. The VIP opening is Thursday, November 3, from 6-8 PM. There will also be a pajama party on Thursday, November 17, from 6-8 PM.

We will be selling our brand new Feminist Artists Coloring Book at the exhibit in the Museum Store...check it out! It has art from 18 of our members, ready for you to sit down and color.

The coloring book will be available at future shows and online, so keep your eyes open for more information on that.

Last, but not least, our show about sexism in the arts in San Diego, Don't Shut Up, is in the preparation stages right now. The artwork will address personal stories on how women are treated in the San Diego Art World, including backlash, physical abuse, verbal abuse, and discrimination. Women's voices are silenced in many ways. There will be an installation as part of this exhibit that will ask for public input. More on that to follow. The exhibit opens at Space4Art in May 2017.
