Bare It All – The Girlcott Exhibit
Now on view!
In 2013, with partners including The Greater Hartford YWCA, the Harriet Beecher Stowe House, Women for Change at the University of Hartford, The Women’s Center at Trinity College, Charter Oak launched “Girlcott,” an initiative to bring women together–locally, nationally and internationally—to girlcott (as opposed to” boycott”) all that was/is oppressive to women. We showed movies, presented panels and theatre pieces and, the culminating event, was an exhibit of beautiful black and white portraits of some of Hartford’s most well-known and beloved leaders, taken by local, women photographers: Nilofer Haider, Lena Stein, and Nicolette Theriault.
All of the women were photographed sans makeup to make a statement about realness and women’s true, innate beauty. In honor of the Women’s March and V-D, we have re-installed the original exhibit.
Come visit our gallery and view “Bare it All”! As you might imagine, it takes on added meaning in 2019.
