Feminist art show weaves women together

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - During the month of October, a studio at 65th Avenue and Maple in Benson is highlighting women. 

"Woven: grounding feminist thoughts and practices in Omaha," kicks off Friday with weaving sessions and a spoken word performance open to the public. 

Visitors can come and sit inside a textile art exhibit called "the house that feminism built." Informally, it's called a girl fort, brightly colored women's clothing is sewed to make a house. 

The project is a collaboration between Omaha artists Victoria Hoyt and Camille Hawbaker. Additional artists throughout Omaha are performers and co-curators on the project, all centered around women.
