Calling all women artists and their supporters!
Inviting all women artists to come share in an open Salon day to celebrate our connections, create together, and share our work.
SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now Day) is coming up next Saturday, March 30th! SWAN Day’s mission is to showcase the talent and diversity of women artists and connect them to their audiences through events worldwide. Since this is Support Women Artists Now, we invite the public to come show their support, talk with women artists, share in their work that day, participate in a women’s public performance piece in streets of NYC, and contribute to a large canvas art piece.
As part of SWAN Day, the Salon is working in collaboration with artist Vito Giancaspro in an event called Arts in Progress. As part of Vito’s series “Art to Wear” 25 women wearing blank canvases will walk together for about one hour through the streets of New York. The public performance will symbolize women’s clarity, freedom and values, as well as their creative engagement with outside audiences.
After the public street performance there will be events for the rest of the day at the Producers’ Club, at 358 West 44th Street (at 9th Avenue) from 1-6pm, including an interactive large canvas participation piece and an open mic/stage. Participation for the canvas piece will be available for contributors starting Monday, March 25th from the hours of 10am-10pm, and culminated as a finished piece at end of event on March 30th. The finished participation piece will be posted online for viewing.
During the afternoon at the Producers’ Club (1-6pm) there will be an open mic and stage for women musicians, performers, comedians, poets, and writers to present their work (up to 15 minutes). There will be an opportunity for film and video projection as well.
Refreshments will be available throughout the event.
If you are interested in participating in the public performance piece, please contact Jessica Dalton at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will meet at 11:00am on March 30th at the Producers’ Club.
If you are interested in participating in the open mic/stage/screen, please contact Su Polo at email@example.com with the subject line “IWAS SWAN DAY PARTICIPANT.”
We look forward to celebrating SWAN Day with you! This is a FREE event for participants as well as supporters who join us.
