Update on Women’s Empowerment Exhibit

Last month, I posted about an “upcoming exhibit” featuring works by a Southborough artist. This morning, WBZ News covered the “Women’s Empowerment” exhibit which is now on display at Hopkinton Center of the Arts.

The report added a detail that I didn’t initially have — funds raised by the exhibit will benefit Dignity Matters.

As I previously posted, the exhibit includes photos of over 200 women taken by Southborough’s Chelsea Steele (formerly Bradway). Many of the subjects are ones that Southborough residents will recognize as friends and neighbors.

WBZ video below includes brief interviews with Steele and HCA’s Director of Visual Arts. It also highlights art by Steele’s co-exhibitor, Bobbi Gibbs, the first woman ever to run in and complete the Boston Marathon.

As for the cause that WBZ’s Levin Reid stated is being supported by funds raised through the exhibit, Dignity Matters:

collects, purchases and supplies menstrual products, bras and underwear to women and girls who are homeless or disadvantaged, in order to help them stay healthy, regain self-confidence, and live with basic dignity.

You can learn more about the non-profit here.

The exhibition is on display through April 20th in HCA’s Lotvin Family Gallery, 98 Hayden Rowe St, Hopkinton. For more details, see my prior post.
