The term "first lady" can mean lots of different things, depending on your interpretation — and artists tend to have wildly differing interpretations of things. It can be literal, like a painting of Michelle Obama. Or it could refer to powerful women in general, like Joan of Arc, Nina Simone and Gloria Steinem. A group of 33 artists combined their takes on the phrase for an exhibit called First Ladies From Eve, and Beyond at City Lights Gallery through April 4th.
