Women in Their Infinite Forms
March 19 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Collaborating for the third year in a row, Athena Project*, Milk Market, and Dairy Block present ”Women In Their Infinite Forms”, a public arts installation curated especially for Women’s History Month. Using tabletop mirrors on a stand as the base of the artwork, we’ve invited 10 artists to design and build an artful interpretation based on this theme.
Projects will be displayed at various locations around the Dairy Block during Women’s History Month from March 1-31, with all sales proceeds donated to Athena Project as part of our annual fundraiser celebrating women artists in all disciplines.
We are pleased to celebrate the artists who are currently working on this commission: Summer Allen, Elsa Carenbauer, Teresa Castaneda, Anna Gross, Courtney Griffin, Calla Michaelides, Denise Richardson, Lexi Richey, Sarah Tenney and S.L. Yang.
The public is invited to join these artists for a FREE Opening Reception, taking place on International Women’s Day, Wednesday, March 8, from 6:30-8pm at Venture X, a co-working space located on the 3rd floor in Dairy Block. Final designs will be on display and available for sale. To purchase artwork, please check https://athenaprojectarts.org/ on March 1, 2023 when designs will be available online.

About Athena Project: Athena Project empowers women* through the arts by providing women artists with paid work opportunities while also ensuring audiences get to see and hear them. We change the world, one paid woman artist at a time. Our programs evolve as the political and social landscape changes.
At present, they include: Read & Rant: A Plays in Progress Series, a book club that serves the needs of new playwrights, providing them with readers and dramaturgical support while providing community members with opportunities to support new work. Curating Art for Impact, a collaboration with or on behalf of community partners, providing unique experiential art such as pop-up performances which elevates and amplifies their missions. Artful Reflections, a forum which connects artists with their audiences and fellow artists with a facilitated discussion about the emotional impact of the art through the lens of the attendants’ world views and identities. Girls Create, summer intensive week-long camps which explore art forms like playwriting, fashion design and stand up comedy, culminating in final performances shared with friends, family, and the public. This program empowers girls to lead and affect change in themselves and others through creative learning.
*At Athena Project, we believe that “women” means many things and can be a complicated term. We recognize that the term “women” does not automatically include all aspects of the gender spectrum. We want to create a safer space for the expression and growth for all women, non-binary, and LGBTQIA+ individuals.
