Join us for the opening of Feminist Bookstore ~ a group show curated by Jennifer Armbrust and Michelle Blade featuring reimagined covers of classic feminist works by:

~ Lisa Anne Auerbach
~ Michelle Blade
~ Alika Cooper
~ Edie Fake
~ Sara Greenberger Rafferty
~ Whitney Hubbs
~ Jessica Hutchins
~ Jessie Rose Vala
~ Megan Whitmarsh

Drawing attention to the role of feminist thinking in artistic practice, Feminist Bookstore celebrates the contribution of writers, theorists and intellectuals. Each artist created a custom dust jacket for a book that has shaped their life, work, or way of being. These jackets will be displayed on the original books, inviting viewer to engage not just with the art, but with the texts themselves.

Saturday May 3, 1 to 4pm
The public is invited to bring a (new or used) copy of their favorite influential feminist tome and make a custom dust jacket from provided art supplies. Participants have the opportunity to donate their book and cover to the ever-growing Feminist Library which will travel with the Feminist Bookstore exhibition. Additionally, all covers created during the event will be scanned and archived at feministlibrary.org. Curators Jenn and Michelle will be facilitating the event.

This event is free, open to the public, and all ages. Refreshments will be provided. The exhibit will run through May.
