The Real Women Project

Real Women Project,
This innovative multimedia art project centers around a series of
13 bronze sculptures ‘that unveils and celebrates the diverse
beauty of women.’ The site features images of the bronze figures
depicts a group of women of all shapes, sizes, and ages — from two
to 75 — created by San Diego sculptor T.J. Dixon, accompanied by
poetry, music, video and stories designed to promote dialogue and
education on women’s health issues. Sponsored by the non-profit
Athena Foundation and funded by The Centers for Disease Control and
National Institutes of Health, the Real Women Project
is taking its sculptures on the road. The bronze figures will be
featured art pieces in ‘The Changing Face of Women’s Health,’ a
five year traveling exhibit for the National Sciences Consortium, a
group of nine science museums. — AL
