The art exhibit "Women of Peace" by Elaine Cimino is on display through March at the UNM Women's Resource Center, Mesa Vista Hall, room 1160, in honor of Women's History Month and the Center's 39th anniversary.

Cimino, a visionary post-surrealistic abstract painter, displays seven portraits of women who have won the Nobel Prize.

"The series of portraits depict both the strength and vulnerabilities of the women portrayed. It was intended to be a study of women's history by bringing the journey of their lives into the present and begin to discuss how they became the recipients of the Nobel Prize," said Cimino.

The exhibit is open to the public Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Signed 8x10 print sets of the exhibit are on sale for $100. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the UNM Women's Resource Center's Sabrina Single Mother's Scholarship Fund.
