Art has always been at the forefront of telling the stories of the times. As far back in history as we know, art has been there. Whether it be carvings on cave walls or in Egyptian tombs, visual storytelling is a needed form of expression that gives us a look into the past and what was going on then. With Saving Faces and We The Women campaign, the visual story takes you on a deeper look at the sign of the times.
Due to the current state of the political climate in our country and beyond, artists Cat Seto and Lisa Congdon didn’t think it was the time to sit back and watch. They wanted to do something to be heard and be seen. Bringing their art communities together, Cat and Lisa wanted to create an environment where women could express themselves in a way that feels safe and encouraging, yet also gives back. I’m so excited that they have a platform here at Design*Sponge to launch their campaign. I hope you feel energized after reading about this amazing organization and are encouraged to get involved. —Erin
