There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.”

Michelle Obama

This March, we have the pleasure of presenting six new stories by Seeds scholars as well as three new stories from inspiring women artists for our inspiration segment in honor of Women’s History Month! While our scholars seek to devote their time to becoming better artists by taking studio classes at the League, they also express their inspiration and motivation in pursuing an artistic path. We have students from various backgrounds, all with similar fates and a true passion for different forms of art. This month, we have an artist that aspires to become a mainstream artist, an artist who was influenced by a former teacher, and an artist who also seeks to enter a career as a powerful woman in business. Read about our seedlings and their journey to reaching new artistic heights and achievements. 

Additionally, in honor of Women’s History Month, we celebrate and praise artists Toyin Ojih Odutola, Cara Romero, and Annie E. A. Walker. Read “Toyin Ojih Odutola’s Visions of Power” and “Cara Romero Stands Defiant Against Institutional Categorization” on the Seeds website. In addition, “Seed of the Flower” by Seeds Editor at Large, Vanessa Hernandez, narrates the story of former League student Annie E. A. Walker who, despite institutional racism, succeeded as a black woman artist during the 19th and 20th century.
