Women’s Museum Of California Hosts A Free Public Grand Opening Its Southeast San Diego Center

The Women’s Museum of California is hosting a free public grand opening of its new Southeast San Diego Center. The event will feature artwork from local San Diego and Tijuana artists, hands-on experiences and free admission to the museum on June 4.

After a ribbon cutting, the public can visit the Women’s Museum of California for free and have the chance to:

  • See how “craftivism” – a form of activism through crafting – has played a role in the Women’s Movement including clothing design, painting, quilt making and “yarnbombing”.
  • Admire the 2,000+ pink pompoms made by students and community members that make up an installation of a women’s symbol cascading down the front of the building.
  • Take a photo with Women’s Suffrage-inspired signs, hats and sashes at a selfie station.
  • Design and assemble their own Women’s Movement-inspired button
  • Create a colorful pompom bookmark.
  • Enjoy complimentary appetizers and drinks.

The museum will debut its featured exhibit, “Crafting Feminism: Textiles of the Women’s Movement,” highlighting how textiles have played a role through the waves of feminism.

See you there, San Diego!
