'Little Waves' exhibition opens Women's Week

A new art exhibition opening today explores what feminism means today. The exhibit, "Little Waves," is open through March 16 in the Nebraska Union Rotunda Gallery. A reception is 5 to 7 p.m., March 16.

The exhibit is part of Women's Week 2012 activities at UNL. For more information on Women's Week events, go to http://involved.unl.edu/womens-week.

The "Little Waves" exhibition was organized to be part of Women's Week activities at UNL. It is a multi-faceted exhibition of curated works, collected stories and photographs. Looking at the complex, and often conflated, state of feminist history, the exhibition seeks to create a space for modern feminist dialogue through the work of regional artists. Gallery attendants and volunteers will be available for conversation and questions throughout the exhibition.

"Little Waves" was organized by UNL Womanhouse, a group of artists, art historians and activists who want to address the state of feminism politics and artistic practices today. The "Womanhouse" name refers to a project of the same name organized in 1971-1972 by the Feminist Art Program at the California Institute of Arts.
