V-Day at AFA

Artists for Art has partnered with the presenters
of V-Day Scranton 2003 to organize Celebrating Women, an exhibit at the Afa Gallery.
The exhibit will run from February 6 to March 1, 2003.
A focal point of V-Day is the production of Eve Enseler’s The Vagina
at the Mellow Theatre at Lackawanna College on Friday,
February 14.

Call to Artists
We are looking for artwork by women in all media that celebrates and supports women’s
issues as well as the artist’s interpretation and reaction to the Vagina
Monologue theme, and V-Day’s vision of a world without violence toward women.

Open House/Auditions

The open house / auditions for V-Day Scranton’s 2003 production of The Vagina Monologues will be held on Saturday, January 18 at 2 p.m. (MEN are invited to not only participate behind the scenes but also to audition.) We will be in a first floor multi-purpose meeting room at Lackawanna College (Washington Avenue and Vine Street) in Scranton. There will be signs at the main entrance to direct you. For further information, please contact
v-day scranton


I post this not only becuase it’s a good cause (and a good piece of theater), but also
becuase I put together a silent auction for V-Day Scranton in 2002, and that grew into
the exhibit this year, that I am supposedly “coordinating.”

Well, I wrote the proposal, anyway….. A lot of people are working on the exhibit.
Kudos to Judy, Marcia, and Alicia for not lynching me!
