Women in art
To celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8, Miss Clara invites you to the exhibition Women in art. We are now looking for artworks made by women all over the country to be presented at the hotel. Anyone who defines themselves as a woman can apply to be exhibited, whether you are young, old, an amateur, or a professional artist.
All artworks will be for sale. As of this year, the profit will be donated to Kvinna till Kvinna, an organization working with the human rights of women in several countries. The artist will donate 50% of the sale of their artwork. For the artist to be able to keep the other half, Miss Clara by Nobis will donate the remaining 50%.
Miss Clara Hotel is housed in a building that was originally constructed in 1910 as the girl’s school Ateneum. The hotel was named Miss Clara as a tribute to the beloved and progressive principal Clara Strömberg. With the exhibition Women in art, we want to enable women to tell their stories with the help of art.
The exhibition will be on display at Miss Clara for a month and all artworks will be for sale.
