FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PUBLIC ART PROJECT “HER VOICE CARRIES,” FEATURING THE  STORIES OF FIVE ROCHESTER WOMEN CELEBRATES LAUNCH

CELEBRATE THE LAUNCH OF HER VOICE CARRIES ON JUNE 26 AT ROHRBACH’S

ROCHESTER, NY (JUNE 25, 2017) – On Monday, June 26, 2017, The Her Voice Carries Project launch and Indiegogo release party is scheduled from 6:00pm-9:00pm at Rohrbach’s Beer Hall & Brewery at 97 Railroad St, Rochester NY 14609. A suggested donation of $15 will give you one drink ticket, light refreshments music by Cammy Enaharo. All proceeds will go towards Her Voice Carries.

As part of Her Voice Carries, five large-scale murals highlighting five unique Rochester women will be created throughout the various quadrants of the city. Each woman featured is making a difference as they live and work in their communities. The five women spotlighted through this project are Safi Osman of the Southwest Quadrant, KaeLyn Rich of the Southeast Quadrant, Imani O’Lear of Center City,, Rachel McKibbens of the Northwest Quadrant and Trelawney McCoy of the Northeast Quadrant.

Artist Sarah Rutherford says of the project, “My intention is to create a network of murals that weave a collective story laced with individual truths. This series of murals will emphasize the commonalities of our human experience through the leadership of empowered women. The voices of these women, both collectively and individually, inspire me to become a better artist and a stronger woman.” The first of the five murals has been completed on Planned Parenthood at 114 University Ave, Rochester NY 14605, which features local poet Rachel McKibbens.

ABOUT HER VOICE CARRIES: “Her Voice Carries” is an art project featuring the unique stories of five women who are working and living in varying communities in Rochester, NY. Each woman will be photographed, interviewed and a drawing will be created in her image. This project will culminate in a final series of murals located throughout the five sections of the city.
