At the beginning of the month
, The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art joined the social media campaign #5womenartists; started by The National Museum of Women in the Arts
, the goal of the campaign is to "call attention to the inequity women artists face, inspire conversation, and bring awareness to a larger audience."
On Mon., March 27, at 6 p.m. The Halsey will host five SC-based female artists — Michaela Pilar Brown
, Arianne King Comer, Camela Guevara
, Donna Cooper Hurt
, and Kristi Ryba
— who will each discuss their work and experience as women artists.
The discussion will be informal and audience members will be welcome to ask questions or posit their own perspectives on the subject matter.
