Join us in celebrating the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment and work of women artists in the Akron Art Museum.

Ratified August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment granted American women the right to vote. Join Curator Annie Wischmeyer and Curator of Community Engagement Reggie Lynch in celebrating the centennial of this historic event with a casual conversation focused on politically motivated work of women artists in the Akron Art Museum collection.

Free for members/$5 for non-members.
