Airing out the “Dirty” Laundry

January 1 - November 29, 2020

Mint Museum Uptown


Local visual artist Andrea Downs created the Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry installation to capture the spirit of women by creating opportunities for them share their stories in their own words. These stories of strength, unity, hope, injustice, and exclusion are joined together on a clothesline. A community art movement, the installation is ever growing, and women can participate by adding their stories to the collection. Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry is a call to gather, to listen and be heard—and to resist hate and injustice by fostering love and understanding.
