Multidisciplinary artists, Cheyenne Sookoo and Mary Orji  are set to present their works following an immersive experience as artists-in-residence during the SheROCKS with CROC "Creative Oasis" program, a safe and inclusive space for creative learners to explore the arts as a career path, nurture their curiosity, develop within a supportive creative community, and gain access to the resources and experiences they need to flourish.

“We’re grateful to partner with The Center for Art and Social Engagement and appreciate Rowan University Art Gallery & Museum for providing the space for our emerging women artists to showcase their creative works,” said Brittanie Thomas and Timea Faulkner, co-founders of the SheROCKS with CROC program in a joint statement.

The showcase is particularly significant during Women's History Month as it takes place at CASE Gallery, home to the permanent feminist art installation from 1978, "The Sister Chapel." The installation is a collective effort by Ilise Greenstein and twelve fellow women artists who she enlisted for the collaborative work, which features standing female role models from history, religion, and myth. The showcase is a continuation of the feminist legacy echoed by the work, as we celebrate the diverse contributions of women artists and continue to create spaces of belonging where they can create history.
