Join us for an entertaining (and educational!) musical revue that tells the story of how American women won the right to vote. This exuberant and lively performance of sometimes humorous and often touching songs and stories traces the struggle for Women’s Suffrage from its beginnings within the Abolitionist and Temperance Movements all the way through Modern Feminism in the 21st century.

Expanding the field of visual tropes, methods and materials, the 23 female artists on view will offer an artistic spectrum that ranges from the sublime to the utilitarian, from expressionism to precision, and from humor to drama. Curated by Janet Goleas.
With Artist-in-Residence Andrea Cote, the public will participate in collaborative printmaking and video. Participants will come together over the course of two months in a series of movement and art-making workshops culminating in a performance and large-scale tapestry.
