“Bitch — It’s Our Word Now”

March 8 and 10 “Bitch — It’s Our Word Now” University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Milo Bail Student Center Fireplace Lounge, 6001 Dodge St. Noon to 6 p.m.; artist lecture at noon both days, FREE, teresaprince.com A year ago, photographer Teresa Prince was hanging out with friends and wanting to practice using her new light kit; they thought it would be fun to pose with the blasé word “BITCH” written largely in black on a piece of paper, and found the result quite liberating. “Women and men have used this word negatively for years to describe people who are not sticking to traditional gender roles,” says the University of Nebraska-Lincoln photojournalist grad. “Women who are tough, opinionated and fearless should be celebrated. So should men who are sensitive and creative.” And so Prince’s “Bitch — it’s our word now” project began. For the last year she has been photographing men and women from college students to moms to artists and fitness gurus, all with their own proud version of the word. Thirty-four of those will be on exhibit for two days only in the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Milo Bail Student Center’s Fireplace Lounge from noon to 6 p.m. with artist lectures both days at noon. “I hope people come see the show and enjoy the images and talk about what strong qualities they prize in themselves,” Price says.
