Identifying as a woman has never been so liberating as it is now. Who would have thought pussy-grabbin’ Trump could bring us closer together, and even closer to achieving our goal of eternal international girl power? The folks behind the Venus Rising Art Show have been championing this very power for seven years running. The two-day celebration of women in the arts returns to the Tangent Gallery with performance art, music, live painting — both canvas and body — as well as 18 shopping and food vendors. Per usual, the event will donate a portion of its proceeds to Alternatives for Girls — an organization that supports homeless and high-risk female youth with the necessary opportunities and resources to succeed. This year, the event will also collect tampons, pads, cups, and other toiletries to be distributed to homeless women in Detroit and Pontiac thanks to the Oakland University-sponsored organization For the Love of Humanity.
