Power of the Purse
This wall installation is now part of the permanent collection at the Berkeley Art Museum
The purses serve as small-scale political billboards and represent women's economical power. Each vintage purse has 2-sided text. The text on each purse is created using Electroluminescent Wire that is lit up using batteries and a small electronic driver that can be set to constant or flash mode.
Nancy Hoffman Gallery and I have teamed up with NARAL Pro-Choice New York, and are donating 5% of the proceeds from the Pred-à-Porter, Pro-Choice purses.
