Pink Progression commemorates, celebrates, and builds on the solidarity established during the historic, global women’s marches of 2017 and 2018. During the marches, pink created a strong visual statement representing unity and empowerment. Over 50 local artists and poets incorporate or respond to this hue as they explore how social interactions are affected by gender and identity expression.

*These exhibitions include all gender identities and expressions. We are on Instagram @pinkprogression.
