Description
Artist created this work as a third year studio art major. The work was for a drawing class. The artist primarily works in textile arts.
NOW WHAT? I find myself wondering this often. The portrait is of a girl I knew in high school who was a very active feminist. She was a very successful woman and when I look at her I think how much the movement has made my life better. However, it is easy to forget we are trapped in a political bubble here in California. Trump being elected president was really shocking for a lot of people... I forgot how much hate still exists in this world.
