Exciting Month of May at the OC Center for the Arts

Exciting Month of May at the OC Center for the Arts

Our May show devotes the entire Arts Center to the feminist cause and movement.

The show, curated by Deborah Rolig and assisted by Dee Gray, is a show by women, about women, and for women and everyone.  May will be an incredible month devoted to the Divine Feminine.
“The unifying theme, ‘Divine Feminine,’ revolving around the empowerment of women through honest expression, speaking from the heart,” said Curator Deb Rolig.
