Texas Bold Beauty Project Exhibits Photography at Morgan's Wonderland
Disability becomes Beauty becomes Art becomes Change Exhibition
By: Bold Beauty Project
WHAT: A unique Photography Exhibition. The Bold Beauty Project was the vision of Shelly Baer, Founder/Co-director, to reveal the beauty, strength, and courage that women with varying disabilities possess. Photographers and models are paired to collaborate on unique works of art. Successful photography exhibitions have been mounted in Florida, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Panama and throughout Texas. Bold Beauty Project Texas was launched in Wimberley (pop. 2,600) in the Hill Country. Bold Beauty Project Texas' ambition exceeded other cities having held the exhibition in five venues to date: Austin City Hall (attracting 1,200 guests at the opening, show will be up through 2019), Texas Capitol Rotunda/Austin, the Old Bakery & Emporium/Austin, San Marcos' Walker's Gallery, and the Messina Event Center, Wimberley. The exhibition at Morgan's Wonderland will be the crown jewel. Texas Bold Beauty Project is part of the Wimberley Valley Art League, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. (http://texasboldbeauty.com)

WHEN: Saturday, 9/28/19 10:00am - 4:00pm & 9/29/19 11:00am - 4:00pm
WHERE: Morgan's Wonderland, 5223 David Edwards Drive in Northeast San Antonio, a half-mile west of IH 35 at the Wurzbach Parkway-Thousand Oaks Drive intersection. The exhibition is in the Main Street Pavilion.
WHY: Bold Beauty Project is developing global communities of bold beauties, using social media to connect them. They will become role models for women who feel isolated by conventional media's narrow depiction of beauty. We are impacting photographers by exposing them to new subjects, asking them to work collaboratively to create an image that is transformative for the models as well as the viewers. Replication models have been created so cities can host their own Bold Beauty Project exhibits. The power is in using local community resources, models, and photographers.
VENUE: Morgan's Wonderland, Morgan's Inspiration Island and other initiatives to help the special-needs community were created through the vision and leadership of The Gordon Hartman Family Foundation.
