Join us at the opening reception for Abiding Courage, an exhibition celebrating the centennial of the 19th Amendment.
One hundred years ago the US Constitution was amended to ensure individual states could no longer deny women their right to vote. The long struggle to ratify the 19th Amendment brought forward thousands of heroic women who stood up for the first time to demand their rights.
The goal of this exhibition is to bring together history and contemporary artwork to inspire viewers to think critically about the right to vote and to encourage participation in our democracy. This exhibition will feature works in a wide variety of media and individual styles, and will be juried by Jonny Skye, of Skye Gallery, Providence RI.
This exhibit is also part of the Shall Not Be Denied initiative — helping to enrich our understanding of this pivotal moment in our nation’s history.
Awards will be announced at the reception.
