WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — An event in West Lafayette gave residents a multiracial experience.

The Indiana Voices of Women and the Purdue Black Cultural Center hosted the event named We Are All Connected. The event aimed to explore the feminine role in world culture and give greater recognition to women’s voices.

The event featured paintings, sculptures, fabric art and glass work by Kokomo artist Marcia Fountain-Blacklidge.

“The artwork features things that connect with different cultures and racial groups,” said organizer Jamillah Gabriel. “So there is something here for everyone. There is an opportunity to kind of interact with the art that’s here.”

The event runs for five weeks. For more information, click here.
