Photo album for Unbound Visual Arts' Annual Flagship Event: Peace in Her Time!

UNESCO/UNITWIN Affiliate Unbound Visual Arts (UVA) hosted its 3rd annual Women's History Month exhibition at the Honan-Allston Library Art Gallery entitled Peace in Her Time: Visionary Women Against War and Violence. UVA’s Executive Director John Quatrale oversaw the exhibition and program, and WGS’s Dr. Brenda Gael McSweeney was exhibit Advisor. Susan Janowsky was Curator. Twenty artists were featured.

Senator Brownsberger stated, “This photo transports us into the center of leadership deliberation in a different world.”  The exhibit was co-sponsored by BU’s Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Program (WGS), also supported by the Gender and International Development Initiatives (GaIDI) of Brandeis University’s Women’s Studies Research Center (WSRC).
