On May 2nd the opening of SHE INSPIRES at The Untitled Space  empowered and educated gallery goers by putting the focus on the women who have shaped our past and present. Presented by Indira Cesarine from May 2 – 20, SHE INSPIRES is a group show of 60 artists who use various mediums to honor inspirational women by creating work revolving around female figures that have made a  positive impact on the world. The exhibit aims to not only explore themes of inspiration of present day female role models, but also the legacy of women who have paved the way, and to inspire and empower others with visual art on the subject. Various events will be happening in conjunction with the SHE INSPIRES exhibition later in the month including a special performance by renowned dancer Katherine Crockett in collaboration with artist Laura Weyl on May 9th and an artist talk on May 16th.

Dancer Katherine Crockett will be performing on May 9th at The Untitled Space, in collaboration with artist Laura Weyl.

Attendees to the opening viewed paintings, photographs, textiles, ceramics and other media that paid tribute to legendary female figures including Angela Davis, Victoria Woodhull, Frida Kahlo, Bell Hooks, Joan Didion, Nina Simone, Michelle Obama, and Marilyn Monroe.

Ten percent of SHE INSPIRES exhibition proceeds will benefit non-profit She Should Run. In providing inspiration and thus encouragement for women to continue the work of their predecessors, SHE INSPIRES mirrors the mission of non-partisan organization She Should Run which is devoted to expanding the talent pool of future elected female leaders by creating a culture that inspires women and girls to aspire towards public leadership. She Should Run believes that women of all backgrounds should have an equal shot at elected leadership and that The United States will benefit from having a government with varied perspectives and experiences.
