Women in America; Poetry and Art
The gallery will be presenting Women in America: A 100 Year Celebration of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment
Thursdays – Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Women in America is a celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote in 1920. Women’s suffrage was achieved through sustained protest and pressure on institutions to act. But it’s passage didn’t help all women — indigenous people, and women of color still struggle to make their voices heard and their votes count.
During this exhibit, we’d like to honor the tradition of making change through protest, and seeking equality for each and every life in America. We will dedicate a space in the exhibition for anyone who wants to contribute protest art, pride art, and messages on civil rights, transformational and intersectional change.
