MAIDEN USA: GIRL ICONS COME OF AGE

Maiden USA: Girl Icons Come of Age explores images of powerful, contradictory pop culture icons of the past decades, which run the gamut from Mean Girls and their Endangered Victims to Superheroines and Ingenue Goddesses. Are girls of the Title IX generation in need of Internet protection, or are they Supergirls evolving beyond gender stereotypes to rescue us all? Maiden USA provides an overview of girl trends since the ‘90s including the emergence of girls’ digital media-making and self-representation venues on MySpace, Facebook and YouTube as the newest wave of Girl Power.

HEAVEN'S GARAGE (fiction, in progress)

A silver coin poised in the sky over the long spindly palm trees lining the terra cotta roof of Union Station. A metallic pock-marked ‘O.' 

A tilted mirror in broad daylight, the woman in the moon.  

The Southwest Chief diesel pulled out of the station. Wanda’s finger touched the scratched window glass. Penny for your thoughts? How about a golden Sacajawea to spend on any number of words?

The moon was round, she had been around.

And she was leaving.
