Did you ever imagine yourself as a movie star of the 40's in those bias-cut slithers of sexuality, or did you relate to the activists of the 60's or rock stars at Woodstock? In shaping our identity, we turn to many sources for inspiration. In this exhibit, I explore a group of women who have made bold, dynamic statements in their art, their work, or their public lives. Some of them are universally admired, some vilified, while others have been destroyed by their fame. All of them are smart, sexy, and sassy. They show us what it can mean to be a woman in today's world: to be free, to relish our sexuality, to explore what's important. They are models of intelligence, fearlessness, inspiration, conviction, morality, and humor.
