Art of Empowerment: Rachael Bohlander


  • Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital 921 Pennsylvania Avenue Southeast Washington, DC, 20003 United States (map)

This beautiful work starts a conversation, to help lead people to think, and perhaps reevaluate, their assumptions about inequality, discrimination, privilege, and stereotyping. Found materials, newspaper, and recycled/repurposed artwork, add a sense of timeliness and urgency, grounding the work in the challenges faced by too many people in an inherently unequal and profoundly exclusionary system. The use of strong colors and expressive marks is intended to promote an emotional connection and empathy from the viewer, and convey a sense of strength in diversity.
