The Raw Beauty Project is an innovative photography exhibit that celebrates women with disabilities and that is coming to Pasadena for a one-night-only benefit presentation on September 17, 2016. The goal of the exhibit is to redefine perceptions of beauty, educate audiences, and empower all women.
This project made its debut in New York City in 2014 to a sold-out crowd and has resonated with media around the world, igniting a global conversation about how we as a society treat women with disabilities. The Raw Beauty Project is a moving exhibit that evolves with each subsequent presentation.
Spearheaded by Angela Rockwood, actress and producer of the reality series “Push Girls,” the Pasadena exhibit will feature the work of 22 photographers (including Misty Fairbanks, Laura Tillinghast, Stuart Pettica, Dove Shore, and Creative Director Daryl Henderson) and more than 20 local models and their remarkable stories. Also, the exhibit will unveil a brand new way to experience these photographs, using tactile printing – raised surfaces so that visually impaired patrons can feel them and experience the exhibit along with sighted guests – in addition to traditional gallery prints.
The event will be held at Paul Mitchell: The School, located at 825 E. Green St. in Pasadena 91101, starting at 7 p.m. Tickets for the benefit reception, which includes cocktails and appetizers, start at $40. A VIP package is also available for $100. Tickets are available for purchase by following this link.
This Pasadena exhibit was funded in part by an IndieGoGo campaign that raised more than $6,500, and the Project remains a grass-root effort that hopes to raise here the needed funds to further its mission and to tour the exhibit to other locations.
