From Where They Sit….“Rosie’s Girls” Share Their  Views

I saw an amazing  exhibition at Santa Monica’s Bergamot Station Art Center this past Saturday, and  just had to share.

Rosie’s Girls“, Santa Monica exhibited chairs that they had both constructed and painted, along with poems the girls had written about themselves, and what thy saw “from where they sat”.  Fun, playful, moving, and inspiring, I photographed a number of the pieces, and present them here for your viewing pleasure. Goooo Girrrrrls!
