It's finished and delivered: the 6" x 6" artwork I created for next week's fundraiser at Juan Alonso Studio!
Juan is partnering with Project 106 artist studios for this fundraiser, which will benefit the ACLU, Lambda Legal and Planned Parenthood. With that last organization in mind, I made this piece honoring Anarcha, Betsy and Lucy. They were three of twelve enslaved women who survived the medical experiments of Dr. J. Marion Sims. Because of their sacrifices, he became known as the father of modern gynecology.
More importantly, the women's sacrifices back then mean more women today recover from difficult childbirths. I hope the sales of artwork in this show can help support women who depend on Planned Parenthood for their health care.
At first, all the art was going to be available first-come-first-served, starting April 28th. But so many people liked the art they saw online, Juan is now taking reservations for specific artworks. So I think it's all right to say this: if you want one, SPEAK NOW or forever hold your peace.
Good luck staking your claim!
