We want to say a huge thank you to all the amazing people who are supporting this new Nasty adventure! Please be aware that the Nasty Women Art Prize (as with all Nasty Women events) is a DIY event- it is completely volunteer run and self-funding. It exists to celebrate, reward and raise the profile of Nasty artists and activists around the world and to raise money for Planned Parenthood. This is not a commercial venture and everyone involved including all gallerists, judges, etc. is giving their time on a completely voluntary basis, because they support and love the movement!
