Welcome to The Vagina Project!
Here you will find a gallery of original artwork from around the world made in reverie of the vagina. These works go beyond veneration, however. These are vaginas, each with its own message, giving voice to a part of the body that is all too often associated with indecency, shame, secrecy, mystery, fear, and filth. How unfortunate. We choose, however, not to wallow in this nor walk away defeated with picket signs dragging behind us. Instead, we choose to proclaim truths about the vagina, to meet these detrimental myths head on, by taking matters into our own hands. Vagina is not a dirty word, and our vaginas will not be shamed. They have many important things to say in response to what has been said about and done to them and to the women they belong to.
As you will see from the original call for submissions, we are taking part of in important movement in feminism and in art, a movement that is not new (think: Vagina Monologues, Judy Chicago, Riot Grrrls, and so on), but must continue.
For more information please view the original call for submissions. Anyone is free to submit at any time. Fine art skills are not required, just a passion for the mission of this project.
Stay In Touch!
The Vagina Project will be updated as new submissions come in. To keep updated on new work and announcements, please sign up for email subscriptions in the box at the bottom of this page. If you would like to contact the curator, please email jrowartist at gmail dot com.
