Music, Art, Chocolate, Wine and the Feminine Divine!

Athena In Velvet is an event celebrating women's creativity. Featured artists display their work, exquisitely painted women perform as live statues, musical guests bless the ear, and chocolate and wine abound. Proceeds from Athena benefit Vivacious Voices: Empowerment through Education and Expression, the Women's Resource Center’s creativity program.

"Athena is a noble warrior often portrayed in full armor. We present her here also as a compassionate lover wrapped in velvet: a soft decadent fabric of intimacy and peace. Athena, like each woman, is a complex figure not easily summed up by a single word or concept. This celebration urges and inspires us to explore the ways in which we resemble Athena and her power."
