We are so excited to announce Girls Art Now! our first-ever women artist summit happening this June at Space 15 Twenty in Los Angeles.
The summit will be a full day of panel discussions from artists, founders, activists, writers, musicians and more organized around a big topic: what does it mean to be a woman artist in 2018? Turns out, it means so many things to so many different people. We’re so excited to explore the many facets of being a woman and an artist, through the lens of social activism, feminism, confidence, community and more.
We partnered with our friends at Sexy Beast, a fundraising initiative that began in 2014 as a biennial art world benefit and has grown into an organization that works alongside artists, designers, celebrities, gallerists, musicians, and activists to raise money for Planned Parenthood LA. All of the proceeds from the ticket sales and art sales will go directly to Sexy Beast. Find out more about them, here.
