Be sure to stop by 98 Bottles for a show to celebrate Women in Art...

According to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, only 5 percent of the art currently on display in U.S. museums is made by women. According to Guardian News & Media, only 4 percent of the Music Producers Guild are women.

'She's All That' is an effort to celebrate, encourage, and empower women in art & music.
