September 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Join Landmark Center and the League of Women Voters St. Paul to celebrate 100 years of women and voting on Thursday, September 26 (12pm-1pm), featuring Her Flag, a nationwide collaborative art and travel project celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment and the 72 years-long nonviolent fight that kicked open voting for women in the United States.
Her Flag is an artist-driven project by Oklahoma-based artist Marilyn Artus, as she travels the country in advance of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution on August 18th, 2020. It took 36 states to ratify the amendment into law. She is traveling to each state, in order of ratification, over 14 months and collaborating with a woman artist in each state. Each artist has created a stripe to represent her state. Marilyn’s Minnesota-based artist is Anne Ulku, an independent creative and designer based in Minneapolis/St.Paul. She specializes in many fields including: branding and identities, art direction, illustration, lettering and type design, logo design, and art.
In each of the 36 capital cities, including St. Paul, there will be a public performance where Marilyn will sew the stripe representing the state onto the flag. LWVSP will be registering voters at the event.
