I created this exhibition to represent how I feel about the color pink. Growing up, I thought that liking the color pink meant I was a girly girl and couldn't stand up for myself. Now as an adult, I realize that that way of thinking had to do with misogyny and the idea that to be feminine and accept feminine things was weak. I was wrong a child. Loving things that are feminine don't make you weak, but strong. I love the color pink and florals. There's nothing wrong about enjoying things that make you happy. 

I included artworks with a wide range of mediums and time periods to show that women are powerful in every time period and shown in any way. As you take a look through the artwork, think of them and power and beauty. Think Pink.
