This year, BeyGOOD decided to celebrate Women’s History Month with our own twist: By celebrating the Art LeadHERs of today, tomorrow and the future of women in the art world. For one special day, International Women’s Day, we partnered with LifeStyleHer , Chime for Change and hosted an unforgettable art experience to help enrich the lives of girls and women through art.

Housed at the beautiful Joseph Gross Gallery , we invited a panelist of women from the art world to spread their knowledge, experience, highs and lows as a woman in arts. Hosted by journalist and art enthusiast Alicia Quarles , the panel included artists Swoon , Zaria Forman , Jody Levy and Ingrid Burley .

The day opened with a nutritious lunch courtesy of Dig Inn and WTRMLN WTR with girls aged 14-16 joining us from the Lower East Side Girls Club, Black Girls Rock and The Arts Coalition for a chance to explore their own creativity through individual creations of art with guidance from an artist from the panel.

Following the panel discussion, each artist took to a designated location in the room to create art alongside the future of women in art, answering their questions, guiding their creative process and allowing the girls to have a day rich in the arts.

The girls in attendance were also treated to a photo booth from Bosco to capture the event, a curated mix of women empowerment anthems courtesy of DJ Yelda Ali, Art LeadHer branded gift bags and a full immersive art experience in Joseph Gross Gallery that we hope they will carry with them for life.
