Merkeyna Coif Boutique
The Merkeyna Coif Boutique is a performance and art exhibition curated by Erin Coleman-Cruz and Bianca McGraw. The two decided to create a safe environment for discussions about art, the body, and sexuality using the “Merkin” as a catalyst for discussion. Coleman-Cruz and McGraw took on the personas of Lynnetta Coif and Finesse Coif, the invented Merkeyna Coif Boutique owners. This exhibition was held inside the NIU Women’s Resource Center as the objectives coincided with those of the WRC.
