Last weekend I finally got around to making my I CAN hand. It turned out to be a lot of fun making art on my hand… then again it is always fun to get messy from art supplies.
Here is what it is all about (from https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=477191755646921&id=189349094431190):
I CAN WE CAN: Participate! Do this simple thing: decorate your hand with the inspirational words ” I CAN,” take a photo of it with your phone or camera, and email the image to Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA) Member Brenda Oelbaum at email@example.com
WCA is joining forces with 2012 President’s Awardee Cathy Salser’s A Window Between Worlds (AWBW) and Eve Ensler’s One Billion Rising to draw attention to domestic violence. The I CAN WE CAN Solidarity Campaign is dedicated to building solidarity with the arts, social justice, academic, and feminist communities together with domestic violence survivors and the courageous women and men who work in the front lines of this issue.
The February 14, 2013 Lifetime Achievement Awards falls on the same day as Ensler’s One Billion Rising global action event. WCA will show its solidarity wiht AWBW and One Billion Rising by displaying a mosaic of hands projected on the screen during the awards ceremony. SO TODAY submit and help us make a statement —- send your I CAN hand art to Brenda!!
So like the WCA NY FB page states… go make your hand today! and email it in.. Below is some pictures of mine. I sent in the one with my feet in it..
