Empowering the Women’s Vote
Exhibition and Panel
2020 marks the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote in 1920. It was the first legislation for women’s voting rights. Not until the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965 were voting rights of all women protected and enforced.
Join AIGA curator Kelly Salchow MacArthur, NY based designer Kelly Walters, local activists Raven Cook and Jenna Blakemen via Zoom for a panel discussion of the exhibition AIGA Get Out the Vote: Empowering the Women’s Vote, a collection of posters by women of design, commemorating the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment and motivating present-day voter engagement. The panel will be moderated by local designer and educator Aricka Lewis on October 15 at 5:00 PM.
The exhibition will be available for physically distanced viewing at TheatreSquared in Fayetteville during October and can also be viewed online. Catalogs for the exhibit are available at TheatreSquared or by request from Marty Maxwell Lane. The exhibition and panel are brought to you by AIGA NWA, TheatreSquared, and The University of Arkansas’ School of Art Graphic Design Program.
The exhibition and panel event are FREE and open to all.
