Birthing a Movement: An evening of art & activism
On June 8 & 9, WHAMglobal and the Jewish Healthcare Foundation will host Birthing a Movement, an original, pop-up art exhibit featuring some of Pittsburgh’s leading women artists celebrating pregnancy & motherhood. Local art will be on display on Saturday night during a cocktail reception from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Lower Lounge of the William Pitt Union, with extended display hours on Sunday from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. Attendees at the event will also be able to fight for women’s & children’s health with a letter-writing campaign; co-create a community art piece; add your voice to an innovative video-storytelling experience; network with activist artists & women’s health heroes; and see innovative women’s health work from Pitt Public Health. Please RSVP for the opening cocktail reception here. All art will be for sale by artist.
