'Nasty Women' Exhibit Opens in Maspeth
The Knockdown Center is the first of dozens worldwide featuring art by women in an exhibit to rally against President-elect Donald Trump.
Every penny from art sales will support Planned Parenthood.
The Center will also donate proceeds from this weekend's ticketed events to different community organizations.
"Myself as well as a lot of other women were very distraught and depressed and angry and this was a way to be able to chal--channel that into something positive," Nasty Women Exhibition Co-Director, Roxanne Jackson said.
"These are extremely interesting times. A lot of people are motivated to be civically active and this is a very grand gesture of that," Knockdown Center Co-Director Michael Merck said.
