Hen House presents Tiny Show 2: an art show featuring womxn, transsexual, and gender non-binary artists exhibiting works featuring grand concepts on a small scale. The artists challenged themselves to create works within the physical constraints of 5 x 5 inches, with the hope of confronting our society’s all-too-often narrow view of gender conformity and our place within the artistic continuum. As the concepts depicted transcend the boundaries of their physical size, so too does the courage, creativity, and genius of its makers.
