This exhibition will greet visitors as soon as we are able to open our doors at the History Museum. NOTE: Dates may change as we follow the reopening regulations issued by the Office of the Governor in response to the COVID pandemic. Please check our website before you visit.
The Washington State History Museum is proud to host this exhibition of artworks created for the Suffrage Centennial Celebration by the Northwest Collage Society (NWCS). You can see the works online now, and when the museum reopens post-pandemic, come see these wonderful works in person in the Great Hall of Washington History.
The exhibition is comprised of twenty-four original collages, created by members of NWCS. The collages celebrate historic and current women changemakers in Washington, while also highlighting Washington State’s role in the national suffrage movement. Other themes that you may find in the artworks are that of gender equality and the importance of suffrage in empowering and advancing women in society.
The exhibition was juried by the Washington State History Museum’s Director of Audience Engagement, MaryMikel Stump.
About the Northwest Collage Society: The NWCS provides a forum for the exchange of ideas among members through bi-monthly meetings, which include presentations by local artists or similar programs, workshops, annual retreats, opportunities to enter juried and non-juried exhibitions, circulation of an online newsletter and other publications, and recognition of members’ accomplishments.
