We dare you to find a better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than this. Female artists from up and down California and neighboring states will come together to showcase their skills in artistic expression. A feast for the eyes and the soul, through art work, live painting and performances, they will elevate the space together in one place.
We are excited to announce that Dj Agana and other members of the Few and Far Women crew will be present to share their gifts and create a live mural. Other event guests include student artists, spoken word artists, vocalists, musicians and more.
Without the community, the Urbanists, Urban Art Collective would not be able to do the work we do. So in that same spirit of community, in addition to the arts and entertainment, we are also inviting service providers offering valuable community resources to come hang out with us and connect with the public.
A panel discussion is also scheduled on the morning of March 5 that will feature four well-known successful artists from outside of the area to share their stories, inspire us all, and answer any questions. Help us make this happen!
Queens of Style art event is 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 5 throughout downtown Visalia,including the Visalia Lumber Yard, Oak and Garden streets and the Arts Consortium on the c orner of School and Church streets.

F&F is an all-female art collective, which boasts artists from around the country who travel around the world. Along with three Bay Area artists, 13 women flew in from across the U.S. to paint this massive wall. The project held special significance to the women because June 2015 marked the fourth year since the collective’s inception. Travelling the world to help those less fortunate through teaching and art, has been the group’s mainstay; this wall was all about celebrating the spirt that has brought them all together.

DO NOT support any circus that uses animals!! We did this mural to support animal rights and give the public an idea of what the old classic circus posters were like. No animal should ever be treated with harm. Do your part to Boycott the circus in your city or town this year!
In the wild, elephants and tigers will walk and run miles each day. Yet in the circus the animals are confined to small cages, or chained, and are unable to move about as they would naturally. The animals are also frequently transported in train cars or in trucks, and kept there for numerous hours or even days at a time. This occurs for many animals up to 90% of their lives.
Artists on this mural: Beth Emmerich, Meme, Lord Pawn, Big Cer, Jenn Ponci, Roar, Eon75, Owie, Melissa, Rachel Pelican.
Organized by artist MEME
