Hart Beat! Are you going to the Women’s March on Washington this weekend? I’ve spoken only a little about November 9th and what the election and its result has meant to me, my friends, my family, and my neighbors. Sometimes I feel like I have lots to say. And other times I read articles like this one from the NYT and start to cry on the subway again. Then there are the days that I’m so fired up and angry I can hardly sit still.
One thing that has helped has been listening to women. Women artists like Agnes Martin at the Guggenheim. Women artists like Cheryl Strayed and Zadie Smith. Women singers like Nina Simone and women reports like Ann Friedman. I’m going to be in Washington this weekend with hundreds of thousands of women and men and one thing that I’ve enjoyed lately is the official march’s Instagram account. They’ve been showing art by different women in preparation for the day and so I thought I’d share some of my favorites here with you. At the bottom of this post you can find their names and handles so you can follow them too. If you have others please let me know! See you in D.C., Hart Beat.
P.S. I found this article helpful for getting ready for the march. If you have any tips send them my way!
