An Empowering Resolution

The theme of empowering creative women by helping them find financial independence runs through the exhibition Ubuhle Women: Beadwork and the Art of Independence. The Museum Shop would like to introduce that topic on a more local level. Rebel Nell exists to employ, educate, and empower women transitioning out of homelessness in Detroit. They repurpose fallen graffiti, revealing the beauty underneath each layer. In an even closer local  connection, this collection is made from pieces of “the rock” in Flint. This jewelry allows you to show your Flint pride and help empower people to live better lives. What better way to start the new year?
