Islip Arts Council presents women artists from all different backgrounds in celebration of Women's History Month. 

This exhibition is inspired by Billie Eilish's song "What Was I Made For?" from the iconic "Barbie" movie. Eilish evokes feelings of confusion, existential dread, and the search for an answer. There is hope in the lyrics that someday she will discover her true purpose.

"WHAT WAS SHE MADE FOR?" gives women a platform to contemplate these feelings through all form of expression, be it storytelling, poetry, lyrics, or visual art.
