We Are Womyn

     It was sometime in July when radio DJ and event coordinator Sara Eley approached Jenn Ponci about the We Are Womyn benefit show, and their need for female muralists.

Assembled by artist and curator, Emily Jones, the event was packed with comedians, art, and music. On August 20th, 2016, street vendors lined the roll up doors alongside the parking lot, while Melissa Uroff, Franceska Gamez, and Jenn Ponci painted murals inside the cooperative space. Proceeds from this event went to YOLO, a non-profit organization that assists families in accessing support and resources to encourage health, stability, and self-sufficiency.

The We Are Womyn fundraiser took place at Third Space Art Collective in Davis, California.
