“Grit and Grace: Women at Work” Exhibit Opening | VT Women’s Fund

March 14 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

 

Brattleboro Museum of Art

Alison Wright exhibit at Brattleboro Museum
The Vermont Women’s Fund is proud to announce a new collaboration with the Brattleboro Museum of Art that will showcase women’s resilience through the documentary photography of Alison Wright, National Geographic’s Traveler of the Year and award-winning photojournalist. Our goal is to honor women’s work across the globe, while highlighting how women’s work contributes to Vermont’s communities and the economy. We will use Change The Story’s new report to help tell the story of women at work in Vermont.

The exhibit opens on March 14th and runs until mid-June. As described by the Museum’s curator, Katherine Gass Stowe:
“Wright’s vivid portraits illuminate a shared determination among women in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East to create better futures through creativity, ingenuity, and drive….because empowering women benefits not only the individuals and their families, but their villages, their nations, and our world.”

The Women’s Fund will be at the March 14 opening to greet Alison and hear her speak about her global career and personal experiences that include a 20-year friendship with the Dalai Lama. She will give a more in-depth artist talk at Next Stage in Putney that same evening along with a presentation from the Women’s Fund (tickets required).

Join us for the evening!
