 “This exhibit is a direct response to these disparaging statistics. By providing multidisciplinary female artists of color the opportunity to showcase their work during Women’s History Month in association with the global brand (Time Warner Inc.), ARTs East New York is bringing the obligatory attention to the continuous gender equality struggle in relation to equal pay and unbiased exposure in the arts and society.” says Catherine Green, Executive Director of ARTs East New York. 

 

ARTs East New York Inc. (AENY) is committed to promoting multi-disciplinary arts as a means to address socioeconomic issues facing East New York, Brooklyn.
