  • Free refreshments

About the Artist:

Adrienne Norris is an artist living in Denver, currently well-known for her series Women Behaving Badly. "The Women Behaving Badly series was born out of a desire to educate people about women from the past," Adri says. "Their stories have been lost over time and this loss is a disservice to those women. These stories make adults think more about what they have, and what they have yet to gain, by listening to the voices of the unheard."
