Annual art show, spoken word, vendors, community event celebrating International Women's Day and in solidarity with the LGBT/Queer Community.  This year it was held at iconic LA underground Art Gallery, Self Help Graphics.  This is a huge honor as an artist because I've always looked up to this collective of women and love their holistic approach as activists reaching out to the community.  In addition to showcasing original paintings I was featured in their annual zine.  So thankful for this experience.
