Our team is excited to once again host Madison artist Lilada Gee at our office, 1619 Monroe St, Madison, for Spring Gallery Night from 5-9 p.m. Friday, May 6th! The theme of her exhibit is a “Celebration of Black Girlhood.”
Lilada writes, “Join me in celebrating the beauty of Black girlhood! EVERY girl who attends my Spring Gallery Night exhibit will get a piece of her own art to take home. Bring your girl out for a night of inspiration. Great food. Great company! And great art that celebrates amazing Black girls will be available in many forms for the girl in your life or to donate to inspire joy in a girl who needs a smile put on her face!”
We enjoyed seeing so many of you for Fall Gallery Night in November, and we hope you’ll stop by to meet Lilada, view and purchase her inspiring artwork that supports Defending Black Girlhood, and enjoy food, refreshments, and conversation. You can RSVP here, but you're also welcome to just show up!
There are several other businesses on Monroe Street and throughout Madison that will host other artists and activities that evening as part of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art event. You can find a map and schedule at mmoca.org/activities/gallery-night.
You can join Lilada’s email list at lilada.org/subscribe/ to be the first to know about her pop-up events and new items for sale (including activity coloring books for kids and journals for adults) that support the mission of Defending Black Girlhood. Can't make it but still interested in showing your support? Consider sponsoring an Affirmation Activity & Coloring Book for a Black girl who needs to be affirmed by making a donation here.
