schedule & tickets   venue   official site  

Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, the Brandywine River Museum of Art will present Votes for Women: A Visual History. The long road to women’s suffrage played out very differently from political movements today. In the absence of televised and digital media, the suffragists spread their message through magazines, political cartoons, posters, plays, parades, and even through fashion. This exhibition examines the visual culture of the suffrage movement, revealing how the “look” of women’s rights developed and the important visual strategies that propelled it forward. Presenting an inclusive historical narrative, the exhibition recognizes the efforts of women of color and their community networks, which have been largely overlooked. The visual lessons of the suffrage movement provided a model for later activism, including the civil rights and social justice movements up to the present day, making this not just a centennial celebration, but a window into contemporary visual discourse.

Votes for Women: A Visual History is made possible by PECO, The Coby Foundation, Ltd., the Arcadia Foundation, and The Center for American Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
