For me, Spring 2012 has been about Women Under Siege, a Voices Breaking Boundaries production, which I’ve been working on since December 2011. We had an intense Part 1 on April 28, packed with videos, installations and performances. A large number of community members showed up to express their views and respond to the art, and many stories were recorded.

Part 2 was held just this past weekend, a quieter production that was an opportunity to digest and reflect on the art and conversation from two weeks ago. Pictures can be viewed on VBB’s Flickr site. Videos and other documentation will be uploaded soon.

Meanwhile, you can read some of the press about the show by visiting CultureMap’s coverage as well as a Houston Chronicle editorial.
