You studied history. Celebrate HERstory. Throughout history women struggled to have a voice and we got it in the USA in 1920, the right to vote. Let’s celebrate the amazing things that women everywhere have accomplished since then. We all have women that we admire who are courageous, intelligent and ground-breakers. This exhibit, by 81 artists from seven countries, includes tributes to women well known to us, as well as those who worked behind the scenes.
These quilts celebrate strong women who cracked glass ceilings and those who made discoveries. Women who shook the world by breaking into fields previously reserved for men are commemorated, as are those who were the first to do something before any man. Art quilts honor athletes, authors, artists, aviators and astronauts, business leaders, educators, entertainers, mathematicians, scientists, writers, and world leaders.
