FROM HERE TO HER Artist Collective

FROM HERE TO HER in the news…

"Noting that the two groups share a commitment to explore social justice issues through art, Mullen explained that for each member of the collective, art has been a positive force in dealing with ‘heavy things in our personal lives and in the world around us. (It) has healed us, empowered us, made us more self-aware.’”

Thanks again to students Jaylen and Savannah for performing at the opening and to TRUE Skool leaders Shalina, Sarah and Tyrone for running this awesome program!

This weekend, we shared the very exciting news that our Collective has been commissioned by Alverno College to do the next round of their infamous billboard campaign! Look out for our work JUMBO sized around Southeastern Wisconsin this spring and summer.

Also, our 2014 show has been extended through April. If you couldn’t make the opening, you can check it out Wed-Sun 7PM-2AM at Studio Lounge (2246 S. KK, Bay View). 

Coming to the opening of our 2014 show? Donate $5+ to our community partner TRUE Skool and you’ll get one of our new logo stickers. Which are pretty fresh, huh?

Like last year, all proceeds from our March gallery events will go to support urban arts-based youth nonprofit TRUE Skool and their Be Girl Project.

Check out this quick mini documentary about them and you’ll see why they’re close to our hearts. 

P.S. They just moved to a new space in Grand Avenue that’s 8,000 sq ft bigger than their old spot. You can imagine how much stuff they need to fill it. Got some household or office supplies laying around you’re not using? Or an extra few bucks burning a hole in your pocket? Check out their needs list and donation link here.

And the final addition to the 2014 show and the collective….Cynthia Lund Torroll. This is PENCIL. Holy. Whoa. Check her out at: http://cynthialundtorroll.tumblr.com/

Welcome, Cynthia!

Now, 2014 planning begins….

Thrilled to be adding Rachel Hughes to the collective! Check her out: http://www.rehughesdesign.com/#!home/mainPage

We’re getting the band back together. March, 2014 booked for FHTH Round 2.

Check out the photos from our 2013 Opening Reception party.

Thanks for coming…see you next March!

We asked gallery visitors “What is TRUE beauty?” See their responses here.

COMMUNITY WORKSHOP DAY INFORMATION

In celebration of Women’s History Month and in collaboration with Studio Lounge’s FROM HERE TO HER art exhibit, Alverno College is hosting a day of interactive learning for women in the community. The exhibit’s theme, which questions how feminine beauty and worth are defined in our culture, will be applied across workshop topics ranging from activism to art history.  

SATURDAY, MARCH 16, 2013 at STUDIO LOUNGE art gallery in Bay View.

Details and registration at: http://fromheretohermorning.eventbrite.com/

Proceeds from this and other FROM HERE TO HER events will be donated to support TRUE Skool’s 2013 “Be Girl Project.”

ABOUT THE BE GIRL PROJECT:
Named as a double entendre representing hip-hop’s arts-based Bgirl culture and the program’s commitment to encouraging girls to just “be girls” rather than assimilating to the highly sexualized, mature view of young women we see in the media, the Be Girl Project is dedicated to nurturing self-worth, social-emotional intelligence and increased critical thinking skills among high school-aged girls. Through gender-specific workshops, issues-based campaigning and arts and community service projects that touch on social justice, sexual health, reproductive justice, access to education, equal pay/rights and employability, participants will contribute to a paradigm shift in perceptions about girls and women in media and society while gaining leadership experience and deepening relationships with female peers and mentors.

The 2013 program kicks off with a daylong interactive event at the University of WI-Milwaukee on March 27th featuring panel discussions, breakout sessions, performances by national hip-hop artists Jean Grae and Pharoahe Monch, and more.
