Mothers of Our Nations

DECEMBER 2, 2016  - JANUARY 7, 2017

Marzen is excited to host FROM HERE TO HER Artist Collective's latest community art project, Mothers of Our Nations: Artworks Honoring Women Leading Positive Change. 

The project explores the unique role women play in instigating social change by shining a light on groups of women leading the way in their local communities. Sixteen visual artists and poets partnered with women-led groups in Milwaukee and Madison who are taking action to improve the world around them, then created original work to honor them.
