YSC Session: Art, Entrepreneurship, and the Empowered Female Form

3.7.23 | 12pm–1:30pm

Peck Room (in Commons)


Entrepreneurship is often described as encouraging, unapologetic, and as a way of taking up space. In this Session, we will discuss how entrepreneurship, through the lens of the female form, can be empowering. How does the female form take up space? How do practices of art, representation, non-verbal poetics, and “not performing,” play into notions of womanhood and self-empowerment? Lead Sessionist, artist and illustrator Haley Brown, invites you to this Session on creating space for business in unapologetic art. All are welcome.

Being an entrepreneur is closely tied to her creation of audacious, freely formed characters. Haley is completing her final semester as a master’s degree candidate in Archaeological Studies at Yale where she focuses on Archaeological and Science Illustration. View her watercolors at www.paintbyhaley.com
