March 16 New-York Historical Society: “Art and Women’s Rights”
Skylight Salon—Art and Women’s Rights
March 16, 5:30 – 7 pm, Skylight Gallery
How did art promote women’s rights at the turn of the 20th century? Join us as historian and printmaker Carole Turbin, historian April F. Masten—author of Art Work: Women Artists and Democracy in Mid-Nineteenth Century New York—and curator Sarah Gordon discuss the role of art in the fight for suffrage. We’ll journey together on a casual walk through our Hotbed exhibition to explore activism and the influence of the Greenwich Village bohemian scene on the New York suffrage movement as well as how activists used visuals to seek social and political change.
There is no fee for this event, but registration is required. Please RSVP to Lindsay King, email@example.com. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
