Nasty Women Art Exhibit Opens June 2!

June 2 @ 6:00 pm - June 4 @ 5:00 pm

The idea of the Nasty Women Art Exhibit was borne from a group of artists who wanted to show solidarity for women’s rights. The first exhibit was at a warehouse in Brooklyn in January 2017 and served as a fundraiser for women’s health, raising over $43,000 for the cause. 
Since then Nasty Women exhibits have spread throughout the globe. Check out the map of exhibits here. News outlets from Newsweek and Huffington Post have covered the movement.
The immediate and enthusiastic feedback to this first NASTY WOMEN Exhibition has led to an outcropping of sister exhibitions in different cities across the globe. So far, this list of iterations ranges from Nashville, Lexington, Portland, and Omaha to Brussels and Melbourne, with more than a dozen locales in between. While these exhibitions will be linked ephemerally by social media and press, Jackson and Fiore are encouraging organizers to “bring their own spirit” to the shows, which includes supporting whatever women’s rights organization or nonprofit they see fit. – Via The Creators Project (VICE)
The Knoxville Nasty Women Art Exhibit is opening June 2. Currently, the Basement Community Arts Studio, Lox Salon, and the Body Mind Realign & Gratitude Bar will be hosting artists and accepting donations for the Family Justice Center of Knoxville and Girls Rock Camp of Knoxville. They are hoping to add more Old City Venues to the list of hosting spaces as well. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of artwork will go to these charities that support and empower women.
They are still accepting work from artists so please help them spread the word! Artists can submit here.
