CHICKWEED is the non-profit organization that hosts an annual arts and cultural event featuring all women musicians and artists, delivering a message of empowerment to victims of violence through the arts. The annual event proceeds have historically benefitted the local shelter for women victims of violence and their children.

In addition to musical performances, 2018 CHICKWEED will highlight the work of the seven-year collection of women artists. The show’s title is inspired by the Maya Angelou poem “Phenomenal Woman.”

This year’s concert and festival is Saturday, July 21. Visit www.TheChickweed.com for more information.

The CHICKWEED artists’ work featured at the Salisbury Business Center is available for purchase. The SBC does not accept commission for sales of art through this exhibit.
