In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Delaware Valley Legacy Fund (DVLF) is recognizing some fierce female leaders in the Philadelphia LGBTQ community. To no surprise, on March 7th, MAAG Co-Founders Linda Slodki and Arleen Olshan were deemed as DVLF “Wonder Women.”
Still beaming with pride from their last public honor in WHYY’s Coming of Age this past June, Linda and Arleen had this to say, on MAAG’s Facebook site, in response to their recognition:
If Linda and Arleen are, indeed, only as strong as the community which supports them, then the Northwest has fostered the growth and cultivation of two truly inspirational individuals. Even photographer Zoe Strauss can’t resist taking time out of her busy schedule and current exhibition at the Philadelphia Art Museum to give them props!
Linda and Arleen, I think I speak for all of us when I say: May your dreams continue to evolve with the expansion of the Art Garage!
