Join us for a reception and auction at the Women’s Museum of California at NTC Liberty Station, San Diego CA on Saturday July 30th, 2016 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Part of WJA San Diego’s “Makers Project,” come see the wearable pieces of art that were created to celebrate a specific woman’s influence on a life in the “She Inspired Me” competition.
The evening will include a silent auction, live auction, and we will raffle pieces to raise as much money as we can for local and national WJA scholarships. It will be an evening of networking, wine and cheese, and great support for education in our industry. Tickets cost $10 for WJA members and $15 for non-members. Click here to purchase a ticket
I chose Jane Goodall… to see the piece, come to the reception!
Jane Goodall is not only a pioneering biologist in the study of Chimpanzees, considered our closest evolutionary relatives, but she has forged her way in a male-dominated field, while challenging the long standing beliefs of the time: that humans were the only tool-using social societies. Driven by her love of other animals and their truths, she has enlightened science and society’s understanding of humanity through her comprehensive studies and broad activism.
My own love of non-human animals and evolutionary science is what I attempt to portray in my metal work, especially where it can illustrate our own direct relationship to other species.
