Event Details

Attend the opening reception for Marilyn Artus’ HER FLAG on Saturday, August 10, from 6-9pm.

Her Flag is an activism project created by Oklahoma artist Marilyn Artus to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment (2020) and bring awareness to the 72 year-long nonviolent fight that kicked open voting for women in the United States. Collaborating with women artists from the 36 states that ratified the 19th Amendment into law, each of the artists designed a stripe that Artus used to create an 18 x 26 foot flag, which has been displayed on the exterior of the Clinton Presidential Library and the National Museum for Women’s Arts. 

Exhibited for the first time in Chicago at Epiphany Center for the Arts, Her Flag is positioned as a focal point for education about women’s suffrage and the history of voting rights. While the 19th Amendment states that no one be denied the vote based on sex, the right to vote for all women would not be afforded to Native American, Asian American, Latinx and African American women until much later. Her Flag reveals many pages left out of the history books. This project is about celebrating an important anniversary in history and motivates women to continue to actively participate in their democracy.
