When I saw that The Amplifier Project was having a call for art for the Women's March, I submitted with a quickness. A large part of me knew that my work would not get chosen simply because I knew we needed stronger graphics for the large scale event. However, I entered anyway with the intent to submit my name and let the people behind the movement know that I saw them and respected the idea. I wanted to be a part of this someway or another.
Fast forward to after the march, and I received an email saying that my submission was chosen for a group show! I am beyond grateful to be a part of this exhibition. Not only will my photos be surrounded by great, meaningful work from artists who are incredible, but I feel solid knowing that the intent of this whole project is to bring awareness to the cause of us women.
I sigh numerous times a day that we are even dealing with all of this bullshit but for every deep sigh is a spark of inspiration knowing that we are wide awake.
