FresHER is almost here!

This show's gonna be off the hook. The all-female art collective promises to transform the space into an eco-funhouse of raw materials and street art. Elements such as graffiti, photography, design and construction will be used to connect ideas about consumerism, environmentalism, health, and renewable energy. FRESHER! features main-stay YOUNITY artists such as Lady Pink, Martha Cooper, and AIKO, while introducing almost 40 emerging artists such as China Morbosa and Amanda Lopez. (Who is the artist for FSF's upcoming Girls Got Kicks book!) YOUNITY Co-Founders and artists, Alice Mizrachi and TOOFLY, continue to push the collective to new levels of creativity, and I'm excited to see their "fresh" take on green! As Toofly says, “Look at recent events that are affecting us and the next generation: the economy, global warming and healthcare; this is the perfect time to put on a show like FRESHER! and express our creative desire to promote green living and the improvement of our community.”

Opening reception:
7-10pm, October 3. Clemente Soto Velez Cultural & Educational Center
Put it on your calendar!
