During “Women, War and Peace” event presented by the Center for Living Peace on October 8th, eARTh Studio Director and founding artist, Pamela Donohoo, performed an improvisational dance while simultaneously creating a 9′x9′ painting that captured movements informed and inspired by the experience of women in conflict zones.
The performance was part of a lager discussion led by PBS as they launched their television of the same name. After creating two paintings the eARTh Studio sent one painting to a women’s health and empowerment organization in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The other painting is being displayed at the Center for Living Peace as a symbol of solidarity. Just in case you missed it, you can also view Donohoo’s performance below.
