Immigrant Women, Art, and Faith
If you're in the Twin Cities area in Minnesota before January 7, 2006, don't miss an exhibit created by young immigrant women called "Immigrant Status: Faith in Women," sponsored by Intermedia Arts. The art, including this piece called "Bedouin Squares" by Heba Amin, is also definitely worth perusing on-line.
Intermedia Arts is proud to present the third year of Immigrant Status entitled Faith in Women, which celebrates immigrant and indigenous women, their faith and their strength. Faith in Women looks at matriarchal societies and questions gender differences as they relate to faith and its many definitions ... Faith in Women explores matriarchal societies, women in religious practices and "faith-based values." Immigrant Status: Faith in Women artists create visual art exhibitions and performances, and lead community dialogues and workshops to encourage participants to explore their faith in women.
