‘Womanish’ exhibit makes space for female representation and celebration

What are your thoughts about the visibility of women in the arts?

Danyelle: I think women always have to fight for their piece of shine in any space. The art space is no different. That’s why it was so important to have an amazing experience that was brought to life with all female artists. Our goal is always to uplift women, give them voices and have their perspectives heard.

What piece stands out to you the most?

Danyelle: Our Harriet Tubman $20 piece stands out the most. I remember first hearing the news about the fact that Harriet Tubman was going to be on the $20 bill then saddened at the fact they kept pushing it back. People get to see what Harriet would look like if this became a reality. It’s an ode to her and her sacrifice for people of color and the impact she’s had on the community.

The “Womanish” exhibit is currently running through Oct. 4 at 114 S. State St. in Chicago. To learn more, visit wearewomanish.com.
