2014 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

  • Neighborhood: Pennsburg
  • Change Partner: Maggie Buckwalter
  • Discipline: Visual Arts
  • Social Change / Intent: Feminism

Amy will advocate support for breastfeeding through a gallery exhibition of her sculpture, drawing, and text. With a mission to inform, desensitize, and shift perspective around the ways we view nourishment, Amy envisions all stages of her project as a two-way dialogue focused around questions rather than definitive statements. The exhibit will explore areas of ambivalence and tension around women’s experiences, revealing both its benefits and demands. Amy seeks to investigate broader feminist topics related to nourishment and nurturing, as well as celebrate and critique the experience of motherhood in our society.
