Group Exhibitions (*small group show)
Woman’s Essence Show 2020 in collaboration with UNESCO, Musa International, Rome, Italy, Sep. 2020

The yearly international exhibition Woman’s Essence Show was recognized by UNESCO in 2020 as a gender equality project. This year’s show was, therefore, created with UNESCO originally at the headquarters of UNESCO in Bologna, Italy (moved to Rome because of COVID-19). I was a chosen artist from the United States. I received an award from Musa International and certificate from UNESCO. I also received a Global Studies Research Grant from the Ozmen Institute for Global Studies to attend the ceremony, though I was not able to do so because of COVID-19.
