More often than not, the message from the US healthcare system to endometriosis sufferers is that their pain is all in their heads.
By Denise Zubizarreta June 27, 2023
From societal taboos and gender bias to misinformed doctors and profit-driven healthcare, Below the Belt: The Last Health Taboo exposes a widespread problem in our healthcare system when it comes to the research and treatment of endometriosis — a disease in which the endometrial tissue of the uterus grows in different parts of the body, causing extreme pain. The documentary film, which made its national debut on PBS on June 21, examines how the fight to live...READ MORE
IMPACT 2022: Art that Bears Witness
May 20 – June 30, 2022
Bethany Arts Community presents the work of a diverse group of artists working in a wide variety of media that use art to denounce and challenge racism and discrimination by gender, class and immigration status, and to raise awareness of reproductive rights, public health and access, and environmental issues.
Through the ages, artists have used their creativity to call to action, protest, support, attest, and provoke lasting and meaningful change. Ranging from abstraction to more figurative work, from personal to more universal, from literal to more poetic, the artwork in this exhibition invite and engage us to be aware of inequities...READ MORE

Kyung Jeon at the opening of art exhibition La Borinqueña in San Juan at Fundación Cortes, Old San Juan, Puerto Rico in June 2021,
La Borinqueña and La Perla, 2021
Kyung Jeon-Miranda imagines, through watercolor and gouache, La Borinqueña flying over La Perla neighborhood in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. She was inspired by the paintings of the Endo Period in Japan to make a political comment on the devastation left by Hurricane Maria in 2017. We can observe blue coverings on the houses in the community, alluding to the roofs with blue tarps which are in some place still being used on the island as a temporary cover for homes. At the bottom of the artwork, a dark surface emerges from the seashore, from where La Borinqueña...READ MORE
