When: Sat., March 12, 1-6 p.m. 2016
In celebration of International Women’s Day, Oakland Terminal (2600 Union St.) will be hosting an art show called We Are One Bad-Ass Mutha on March 12 from 1–6 p.m. The free event will feature interactive art installations, poetry, music, dance, healing, paintings, prints, photography, and film from local women of color. Exhibits will include familial duo Malia and Oni Connor’s work on mothering and being mothered, a piece by Vero d. Orozco which pays homage to mothers who have transitioned, and Carina Gomez and Yadiel Plascencia’s collaboration about immigrant mothers. As a whole, the program is meant to pay tribute to the powerful role of mothers in shaping the lives of their children and everyone around them. “This event is born from the myriad and multifaceted ways in which we are mothers,” reads the show’s description. “To children, to family, to each other, to lovers, to ourselves … We are mother warriors, political mothers, spiritual mothers, community mothers.” The event will also feature a marketplace of local vendors, including Healing Hands Massage Therapy and Olive Hair & Beauty, and the first two hundred attendees will receive a free goodie bag.
