MOCA DC
Canal Square, Georgetown
1054 31st St NW
Washington, DC 20007

Opening Reception: Friday, June 6, 2008, 6 pm - 9 pm

Co-sponsored by Authentic Art Consulting and The ThickArt Collaborative. Join us as we bring Making Herstory 3: Connected Sisterhood, an art exhibit celebrating the visual art of women in the DC/MD/VA area to Washington!

Special Note: Authentic Art Consulting and The ThickArt Collaborative have joined Design Scheme Interiors, LLC, Unity Health Care, Inc., The Ward 7 Arts Collaborative, and the Decorators' Alliance of North America (DANA) to help brighten the lives of residents East of the River in Washington, DC through Unity Health Care's East of the River Key Corner Project.

AAC and TAC will be requesting artists and guests to bring to the reception donated books, school backpacks and art supplies for children ages 2-10 to contribute to a new children's reading corner and patient waiting room at Unity's East of the River Health Center. The community served by Unity's East of the River Health Center is tremendously challenged with the issues of poverty, homelessness, lack of education, unemployment, substance abuse, poor education and HIV infection rates that are 12 times that of the national average.
