Ni Una Mas: Drexel University

Major Art Exhibition, ARTMARCH, Film Screenings, Concerts and Lectures Will Bring Attention to the murders of over 700 Women in Juarez, Mexico

Ni Una Mas is a powerful Drexel University-wide collaboration of academic, student and institutional departments intended to raise awareness about gender violence and, in particular, crimes against women in the Mexican bordertown of Juarez. The cornerstone of Ni Una Mas is an art exhibition featuring over 70 works of art by twenty international artists, including Yoko Ono, Kiki Smith, Nancy Spero, Irish activist painter Brian Maguire and local artists Arlene Love and Jen Blazina. Work of noted forensic artist and Philadelphia native Frank Bender will also be included in the exhibition. Ni Una Mas will demonstrate to students and the Philadelphia region that art can be a force for social change.
