VOTE: A Centennial Celebration presents artists’ personal reflections upon the 100th Anniversary of Amendment 19, which granted women the right to vote. For this nationally juried call, artists were encouraged to submit work related to the history of women’s suffrage, the visionaries of that time, and/or the continued quest for voting equality. Loveland sculptor Jane DeDecker will be a featured artist. A maquette of DeDecker’s 19th Amendment centennial monument, Every Word We Utter, will be on display.
This exhibition is presented by 2020 Women & the VOTE, a community project that supports events celebrating women’s suffrage throughout the 2020 calendar year.
