Insider Picks: Shannon Maldonado
This week's guest curator is Shannon Maldonado, founder of YOWIE, a home and life shop focused on curating small collections from friends, independent artists, and designers. A portion of the proceeds from her picks will be donated to The Garces Foundation, a nonprofit organization committed to ensuring that South Philadelphia's underserved immigrant community has access to health and educational services.
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Paradigm Gallery is launching a new initiative called Insider Picks, a series of guest-curated benefit virtual exhibitions. Each week, the gallery will select a fellow small business owner to curate their very own Paradigm exhibition. The guest curators will come from all backgrounds and industries and will share their unique point of view through their curatorial vision. A portion of the proceeds will go to a charity of the curator’s choice, as well as to the curator’s small business, and of course, the participating artists. Insider Picks hopes to bring awareness to the Paradigm artists, small businesses and select charities who have been affected by the pandemic. We’re all in this together!
