Girl Museum is thrilled to announce the opening of our final exhibition of 2010, Girl Saints. Girl Saints examines the lives, deaths, and artistic representations of sixteens girl saints.
Part of Girl Museum's mission is to celebrate girlhood, and through our "Girlhood in Art" series we explore ways this has been represented in art history. Depictions of girls being tortured and killed, whatever the reason, is not worthy of celebration. However, the destruction of girlhood is a strong theme throughout human history, with intentions ranging from forgiveness to peace.
Regardless of your personal beliefs, do the messages justify the images? Visit Girl Saints and decide for yourself.
Don't forget to tell your friends to visit Girl Museum and all our exhibitions!
We're always open and always free.
