DESCRIPTION

Your body is a battleground focuses on the ways art moves the pro-­choice and feminist movement forward. The exhibition features more than 30 sculptures, photographs, paintings, drawings, and mixed media works. All works explore a women’s right to choose.

Your body is a battleground supports Personal PAC (www.personalpac.org), a nonpartisan political action committee dedicated to protecting and advancing reproductive rights for all women.

The exhibition features art work from more than 30 female artists, including the noteworthy Michelle Pred (see image above).

The exhibition concludes June 9, 2016 with a live auction of all exhibiting art pieces. The ‘The Art and Politics of Choice” auction is hosted by several influential Chicago women, including Virginia Bobbins and Cari Sacks. June 9 auction funds will benefit Personal PAC.
