Suffrage and Struggle: Feminist Art and the 19th Amendment Centennial commemorated the centennial of women’s suffrage in the United States by marking the milestone of the 19th Amendment. This exhibition aimed to celebrate women’s empowerment and the changes that have occurred over the last century, while at the same time acknowledging that more work remains to be done to achieve equality in our society. Regional in scope, this exhibition recognized the outstanding creative accomplishments of visual artists working in the New England and New York area whose work explores the complex place of women in society. Jan Howard, Chief Curator and Houghton P. Metcalf Jr. Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs at the RISD Museum, made selections for this exhibition from a broad range of work dealing with issues of gender and sexuality.
