One response to “The Body Project”

    Please take a moment to check out The Beautiful Women Project. The Beautiful Women Project is a traveling photography exhibition created in part by an Artist’s Grant from the New York State Council for the Arts. The photo-documentary shares the life stories of thirty five women ages three through ninety brought to life through their black and white images. Our message is simple, yet powerful: It is the sum of a woman’s life experiences that makes her beautiful. The Beautiful Women Project has been endorsed by The Women’s Media Center, The Lance Armstrong Foundation, and New York Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand.
    From the very beginning, The Beautiful Women Project has brought art and discussion into very public forums. Redefining beauty begins with the discussion that is fostered by our audiences’ experiences during and after their viewing of the images and stories of these amazing women. The Beautiful Women Project has partnered with various organizations to raise awareness for our shared messages and funding of our shared missions including: American Heart Association, Comprehensive Care Center for Eating Disorders, Girls Inc., New York State Business and Professional Women’s Scholarship Fund, Russell Sage College Wellness Center, ToLife!, Wiawaka Holiday Retreat House for Women, YMCA Reach Out for Youth, and other community organizations.
    In October of 2007 the project entered a new phase: working with college and universities to create exciting programming incorporating our project, current courses of studies, and related popular culture topics and calendar weeks and months related to women. In January of 2008, The Beautiful Women Project released a nationally published book based on the exhibit, Beautiful Women, Celebrating Beauty in Stories and Stills (Bridgeway Books), and through the sale of our book, we are able to continue to give back to communities.
    I would like the opportunity to speak with you about bringing The Beautiful Women Project to UNC Charlotte. I would like to invite you to our web site: and look forward to speaking with you.
