A Seat at the Table Chair Auction
In honor of the Latinas First Foundation's 10th anniversary, as we continue to celebrate, elevate and honor women, we invited 10 Colorado Latina artists to paint an unfinished wooden chair, transforming its simplicity into a work of art.
The chairs are an original, one-of-a-kind masterpiece that were auctioned off. Each artist’s vision, passion, paint strokes, love and consejos channeled what their artistic rendition of what "having a seat at the table" means to them as Latinas. Each beautiful, original Seat at the Table chair will be a lifelong memento transcending generations, celebrating each artist's vision of what it means for Latinas to feel empowered to use their voice to advance our cause.
