SWAN Day Spotlight: SWAN Day MKE
Now in its 4th year, SWAN Day Milwaukee is celebrating the power and diversity of women's creativity with "Water: Reflection, Ritual & Resource", an art exhibit at the Urban Ecology Center. SWAN Day MKE exhibitions explore themes of women's artistic & spiritual connections to nature, and how these roots nourish one's work, activism, and daily living.
Over one-hundred women-identified artists of all ages, disciplines and levels of artistic experience residing in Milwaukee and surrounding areas have been invited to participate in an informal, non-juried celebration and exhibition. SWAN Day MKE participants reflect on the topic of water and create a piece that expresses their thoughts, relationship, experience, or practice related to water and how it connects us to place, people, ritual, and ancestry.
Jamie Bilgo Bruchman, the lead organizer of SWAN Day MKE says, "The response to this year's theme has been outstanding, and we are delighted once again to welcome dozens of new artists from a diverse range of artistic backgrounds, ages, cultures, and mediums." Women from all over the greater Milwaukee area are coming together for what promises to be an amazing celebration.
The exhibition runs from March 23rd to June 1st. There is also an opening reception on Saturday, March 23rd from noon to 3pm. For more information, connect with SWAN Day MKE on Facebook.
