ARE YOU A DIVA II?
I grew up in C-U but left after college. I became spoiled living in San Fran and Chicago but I don't regret moving back. We [now] have culture, we [now] have chefs, we have become the prairie tech hub! Plus the sculptures that Public Art League (PAL) have been installing around town really help dress the place up too, wouldn't you agree?
Then I met Masha Trenhaile, Liz Jones, and other ladies who had this absurd idea... Why not have our local ladies and divas of Champaign Urbana raise the funds to buy, and donate, La Diva II to our community?
The artist, Ruth Aizuss Migdal, is a celebrated Uof I alumni who will be featured in an exhibit at Krannert Museum in July (click here for more info) . Ruth's sculpture La Diva II, brings color and joy to our downtown, art to the community, and celebrates the glory of femininity. Having the ladies of our community come together to buy her just makes sense!
I invite you to join us to raise FUNds, awareness, and celebrate our community
by giving La Diva II a permanent and proper Champaign home.
Thank you for your time
