Be a SOHO Mentor

SOHO logo

SOHO (Space of Her Own) is looking for mentors for the Old Town program, which meets Tuesday evenings. Read more for details on attending an orientation session:

SOHO—Space of Her Own program orientations will be held on Tuesday, May 14 and Tuesday, May 21 from 5:30–7:30 p.m. to orient prospective volunteers to the program, the mentor commitment and the application process. Click here to register.

SOHO is an creative mentorship program that serves pre-teen girls by providing yearlong mentoring through engagement in life skills instruction, creative art activities and meaningful community service projects. Each volunteer mentor makes a one-year commitment to the program, which fosters long-term relationships and culminates in the renovation of each girl’s bedroom, HGTV-style. SOHO utilizes evidence-based life skills curricula and the National Mentoring Partnership’s model program guidelines.

SOHO operates from September to June from two Alexandria locations:  The Art League’s Madison Annex on Tuesday evenings and on the West End of Alexandria (location and meeting times to be determined). To learn more about SOHO, please visit www.spaceofherown.org. E-mail questions to SOHO@spaceofherown.org. Mentor One Child. Change Two Lives.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
