Diversity of the Girl, by Hannah V. ’20
Diversity of the Girl is an art gallery highlighting the variety in women. As the curator, I asked myself and each artist, “Do the women you see in the media look like the women you know?” The answer was no; where are the women with curves, acne, disabilities, dyed hair, colored skin, tattoos, and body hair?
My project’s purpose is to defy the societal imagery we are presented every day. Diversity of the Girl encourages the audience to accept and admire the array of women we know on their own terms, not through portrayal by the media.

A Message from the Creator
You may notice the simplicity in description and presentation of this exhibit. This is intentional. During my study period of creating Diversity of the Girl, I learned from my classmate, Juliette C., that people best engage with art when they aren’t expecting to. This inspired me to narrow the material my audience would engage with. I’ve made the choice for this exhibit to include solely the piece, as well as the title, medium, year, and artist for information. This is in hopes that the simplicity of presentation will greater enhance the viewers experience.
