For women, the time is now. Today Erin Yoshi begins her month-long takeover of the Not Real Art Podcast with a focus on uplifting women in the arts. We kick things off by finding out a little more about Erin, who is a creative strategist that paints stirring murals. As a curator, producer, former nonprofit executive, and now podcast host, Erin interviews two raw and powerful women for today’s episode: Favianna Rodriguez and Anne Martin. To start, listeners will learn about Favianna’s journey through art and how it has served as a way for her to express her experiences and the struggles of the oppressed. We then find out from Anne about her own history in art, the intricacies of printmaking, and the substantial value that comes with it. Following this, we tuck into the subtle and not-so-subtle undertones of Favinanna and Anne’s artwork before we unpack why prints can be so empowering. Both Favianna and Anne open up on the democratizing nature of prints and why tier value to society is misunderstood. After packing away print myths, Anne shares takeaways from her successful print clients. She expresses the importance of brand while Favianna doubles down on how artists can create fellowship. Toward the end of the episode, Favianna and Anne share their personal stories and touch on their respective vocational endeavors: The Center for Cultural Power and Sugar Press, respectively.
