|Date:||October 13, 2018 - January 13, 2019|
Location: Museum of Wisconsin Art, 205 Veterans Avenue, West Bend, Wisconsin
Active military specialist and photographer Corey Fells grew up in one of the most segregated cities in the United States—Milwaukee—which has significantly impacted his artistic perspective. 100 Womxn Project is a celebration of diversity, resilience, and womanhood. Inspired by his late mother, Fells set out to document 100 minority millennials from across the city. Each photograph was taken in front of the same ivy-covered wall, creating a visual continuity that reflects the shared experience underlying each unique individual. Their pictures and stories chronicle their hopes, dreams, trials, and tribulations as well as their aspirations.
