Empowering Women Through Art: twenty2 Comes to Post 

By Faith Christian-Ferri, ’27, Communication and Media Studies, Honors Program

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Post University is delighted to showcase a captivating art display by Connecticut-based wallpaper and textile company twenty2. The exhibition is being hosted at Post Downtown in the historic Howland-Hughes building in downtown Waterbury and will feature custom-designed wallpaper created specifically for this gallery. 

twenty2 has been an innovator in the design and print industry since it was founded by Kyra and Robertson Hartnett in 2001—largely due to its primarily female team. In a recent statement on the Business of Home podcast, Kyra Hartnett shared, “[The company is] over 85 percent female, and we’re really proud of the fact that we are challenging the norms of manufacturing and digital printing, both being essentially male-dominated industries. The team is also incredibly artistic—over 50 percent of our team has arts degrees.” 

The Howland-Hughes display seeks to highlight the accomplishments of these women and empower others to break barriers and take up space in traditionally male fields. In an email to Post University associates, twenty2 Production Manager Jossalynn Harris shared insights into the company’s concept for the Women’s History Month art display. “The pieces are all made by our employees whom we asked to provide art that encompasses the concept of disrupting societal constructs of what women can and can’t do,” she wrote. 

Each piece is accompanied by an artist statement, allowing visitors to connect with the artists and gain a deeper understanding of the messages conveyed through the art. Sometimes pretty, sometimes provocative, this thought-provoking pop-up gallery expertly captures the essence of empowerment, resilience, and creative rebellion against societal norms. The display is open from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. for the duration of March, and it is a must-see for anyone in the area.

At Post, we work in partnership with our students as they achieve their educational goals. Because of our commitment to supporting our students in planning for their future, Post University is providing additional resources for our students to make informed decisions about their financial obligations.

Beginning March 11, 2024, all students who receive a financial aid offer will work with their financial aid advisor to discuss and understand each award.  Students must accept their award – Post will no longer disburse any Federal Loan funds until the student has reviewed the aid offer with the advisor and has accepted each award via their student portal.  Post is committed to ensuring each student is provided the information they need to make informed educational financing decisions as they pursue their academic goals. We look forward to our conversation with you as we implement this new process.

Please contact the financial aid team at 800.660.6615 with any questions you have.
