In celebration of Women’s History Month, renowned artist Andrea Arroyo presents the exhibit “Femenina,” featuring works that celebrate women’s strength and courage and honor the female body.
While commemorating the lives and stories of extraordinary historical figures (e.g. Malinche-Mexico, Cleopatra-Egypt,) Arroyo also celebrates the role of women in contemporary society, and seeks to bring attention to issues of gender discrimination and gender justice.
Ms. Arroyo is an award-winning, New York-based artist whose work is exhibited widely. Honors and Awards include: Award Artist, selected by President Bill Clinton, 21 Leaders for the 21st Century Award, Groundbreaking Latina in the Arts, Official Artist of the Latin Grammys, New York City Council Citation Award for Achievement in Art, Outstanding Latina of the Year, New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships, Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance Awards, and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Awards.
