In Our Bodies: Expressions of Body and Self features the results of a workshop organized by Stacey Mimnaugh to provide students an opportunity to express their thoughts about body image.
Stacey Mimnaugh, of the Women's Health Project, in collaboration with the Student Union Craft Center spearheaded the event. Mimnaugh, who is also curating the exhibition, says the work features life-size silhouettes drawn or painted on paper and also includes photographic documentation of the workshop by Oliver Scott Snure, a student photographer for The Daily Collegian.
The Women's Health project, a student organization, organizes educational events about women's health issues, and is part of the Health Education Department at University Health Services. The workshop was made possible by a grant from the UMass ARTS Council.
