SWAN Day is being facilitated by The Fund for Women Artists (www.WomenArts.org) a non-profit arts service organization which is dedicated to helping women artists get the resources they need to do their creative work. It will be a day to raise visibility and raise funds for women artists  a powerful new way to put the spotlight on women’s cultural contributions during the final weekend of Women’s History Month.
