"Philly WCA in Women in the Arts Magazine"
The Dress Project , a 2005-06 WCA collaborative partnership with member artist, Diana Riukas, was written up in "Women in the Arts Magazine" Fall issue (published by the National Museum of Women in the Arts of Washington, DC). Diana Riukas was interviewed by writer Laura Harbold who wrote, "Riukas challenged the traditional standards of appearance and behavior represented by the dress.......and with the variety of imagery received by almost 100 participants (she) hoped to make a statement about the different levels of female personal identity."
Thank-you again to the members of WCA who helped to make this project happen! D.R.
