Get Kristy Lovich
Last night we went to a fundraising event for Kristy Lovich. She is a self-taught artist, who has decided to fulfill her teenage dream of going to art school. She was accepted to Art Center College of Design, which is no small achievement. The only problem is she does not have enough money to attend...yet.
We heard her read a poem on the Feminist Magazine show on KPFK two weeks ago. I almost never hear radio anymore but when I do it is KPFK. Anyway she read this amazing poem called "I Love Women" and even mentioned a few of my favorite women role models (Kathleen Hanna, Maya Angelou, hello!). Sometimes I think they are every woman's role models too, but sadly it isn't so. After the poem the interview continued and she said she opened a gallery at her house so that she and other local artists could display their work and have a space. Punk rock!
