On January 21, 2017 history was made when over two million people joined women and sister marches in more then five hundred US cities and around the world. During the marches, pink created a strong visual statement representing unity and empowerment. Over forty local artists incorporate this hue as it reflects manifestations of personal, social, and gender connections.
*This exhibit includes all gender identities and expressions.
