Earned: Women in Business and Labor Exhibition opening at Boston City Hall
Starting on International Women's Day, this is an exhibition about the roles of women in business and labor and their sacrifices, challenges, leadership, and innovation. The theme coincides with the one from National Women's History Month.
The exhibition is curated by John Quatrale and advisor Brenda Gael McSweeney, Ph.D. The design for the exhibition is by Alexandra Kontsevaia Peterson and graphic design by Cait Stuff. The artists include: Nancer Ballard, Nancy Hall Brooks, Tsun Ming Chmielinski, Linda Clave, Anita Helen Cohen, Jennifer Jean Costello, Lynda Goldberg, Sarah Iwany, Nhung Mackey, Aline Martini, Brenda Gael McSweeney, Diane Sheridan, Maria Termini, Andrea Zampitella, and Ellen Zellner.
The art represented in this exhibition provides insights into the roles that women have played in the workforce and their sacrifices, challenges, leadership, and innovations. Personal stories and reminiscences of the struggles and sacrifices that many women, past and present, have endured are also presented. The 15 women artists in this exhibition have all thought about what it means to be a woman, an artist and a worker in today's economy. They are sharing their art today to help tell the story of gender equality in the workplace in the hope that more knowledge will lead to more progress in this economic field of business and labor.
The Scollay Square Gallery is located in Boston City Hall at Government Center, Boston and is open to the public Monday - Friday, 9:00 - 5:00 pm. Boston City Hall is accessible from the Boston City Hall Cambridge Street entrance adjacent to the MBTA Government Center Station for the Green and Blue Lines.
