On March 7th, I was honored to be part of a huge art show celebrating International Women's Day at the Museum of Latin American Arts. This was a huge art benefit for Las Fotos Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated in educating disenfranchised young women the art of photography.
This one night event was packed with art, vendors, music and entertainment. I am truly thankful to be part of this show and to be have showcased my work in a museum.

Before the rush of people, I got a chance to take a pic of my piece which was hanging at a great spot. You can see it right when you walked in. Blessed.

Overall the event was a smashing success. Maybe too successful. There was a 2 hour wait for food and it was so crowded that there were not a lot of spaces to sit. But for shows like that, attendance is important and with each person paying entry to get in, the money raised goes to a great cause!
