The arts have the capacity to inspire, to provoke empathy, and to spark a revolution. We at Pen + Brush have always believed these truths – through more than a century of national and international conflict, and periods of deep social change. Pen + Brush is committed to redoubling our efforts to keep the arts accessible and free from actions that limit, restrict or perpetuate the lack of gender equity and diversity for artists and writers.Our Vision Donate
On view through June 30th, this immersive exhibition celebrates women who share their stories to shine a light on gender equality. Based on the storytelling project and book of the same name by creators Geoff Blackwell and Ruth Hobday and published by Chronicle Books, the exhibition is inspired by the simple idea of photographing and filming 200 women—regardless of nationality, race, religion, status or celebrity. The project is founded on 200 original interviews where 200 women are asked five fundamental questions about what is most important to them in their lifeLearn More
