Review for BALD GIRLS DO LUNCH INC, Scarborough, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

The power of this program is in community and fellowship, or rather, sisterhood. Women diagnosed with alopecia areata report that the experience of getting together with other women like them is deeply meaningful--life- and identity-affirming.

Review for PYRAMID ATLANTIC INC, Silver Spring, MD, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Nearly every time you walk into the studio or exhibit spaces, you discover artists engaged in making art, inventing new approaches, or teaching others. This place is about collaboration among artists, youth, and community - specializing in printmaking, papermaking, letterpress, screenprint, art of the book, digital media.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

busy and friendly.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

infuse Maryland, DC, Baltimore, and the mid-atlantic region with contemporary art and artistic collaborations; influence the form and practice of contemporary print and papermaking.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
