From Here to Her Artist Collective's new show opens Nov. 12

For the fourth year in a row, a collective of women artists is honoring influential women through original art.

In the new show — Mothers of Our Nations — local artists in the group “From Here to Her” have teamed up with women-led organizations in Milwaukee to create their artwork.

Paintings, 3-D sculpture and original video will be on display, and the public is invited in to share the experience highlighting female social justice leaders.

“We started noticing as we looked around this year, that women were leading the charge for social change,” said Katie Mullen, founder of From Here To Her.

The show opens Nov 12. at the Magnet Factory in Bay View, 2424 S. Graham St., and will be on view for one weekend only.
