Move over "Vagina Monologues," it’s time for "The Exquisite Uterus Project."
The fourth showing of this project opens on Friday, Sept, 20 from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Union Art Gallery, 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd.
The event will feature more than 200 uteri art pieces curated by Wisconsin feminist artists Alison Gates and Helen Klebesadel. Theme of the artwork – which are a mix of sculpture, mixed media and print – range from reproductive freedoms to personal stories.
The Raging Grannies will perform at 6 p.m. and there will be a 15-minute poetry reading from three local poets at 7 p.m.
The Raging Grannies are a group of social activists – all are women old enough to be grandmothers – who sing songs at protests and dress up in clothes that mock older-women stereotypes.
This event appeals to my quirky sensibilities. I wonder if my school-age sons would find this entertaining?
