The Aliados con Amnesty network of Amnesty International USA (AIUSA) and Avenue 50 Studio are pleased to present Â¡Presente! Homenaje a la Mujer, a group exhibition including nearly 100 artists from the U.S. and around the world. The exhibition includes a variety of 2-D and 3-D art by both male and female artists. The exhibition coincides with International Womenâ€™s Day. Its purpose is to celebrate women and to create awareness of AIUSAâ€™s Stop Violence Against Women Campaign.
The Aliados con Amnesty network is a group of young Latino activists engaged in promoting human rights and to inspire activism. Avenue 50 Studio is a non-profit art gallery located in Highland Park that enhances public recognition and appreciation of multicultural art. The exhibition is being organized by three women: Kathy Gallegos, Director of Avenue 50 Studio; Julissa GÃ³mez, AIUSA Field Organizer; and Liliana Herrera, AIUSA Latino Outreach Coordinator, all of whom are passionate about â€œartivismâ€, the idea of activism through art.
