VIRTUAL EXHIBIT​

The Arts Council of York County, the Women’s Art Initiative and Winthrop University Galleries have partnered to invite the York County community to engage and participate in Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry, an ongoing community art movement. The movement responds to the silencing of women*, creating opportunities for all women to share experiences through visual storytelling. 

Artist, activist, community arts organizer, and founder, Andrea Downs will install a small selection of the more than 400 pieces of artwork that are a part of a growing collection of women's stories. Artwork created during Laundry Day Workshops and individually by folks in the community is collected and joined together on clotheslines and will be featured at the DiGiorgio Campus Center lobby at Winthrop University and the Perimeter Gallery at the Arts Council of York County's Center for the Arts

The installation will include information about how the public can be involved in this movement.

Please contact me if you are intersted in hearing more about how you can add your story to the laundry line.
