Andrea Drouillard, a writer for a local educational publisher Gale Cengage, came to see our show, ‘The 19th Amendment at 100: Women’s Voices Then and Now’, at Swords into Plowshares Peace Center and Gallery, Swords into Plowshares. Though she came just before the show closed on February 29, she appreciated it so much she wanted to write about it in her blog for Gale, Gale Cengage. What women did to gain the vote demonstrates what unrepresented people can do to establish their own worth, their equal rights, and make their own history known. This is what the Women’s Caucus for Art is dedicated to accomplishing. With every WCAMI show, we take another step for women in the visual arts in Michigan.
Thirdy-four Michigan artists were shown and works from nine other states were included as well. Three outstanding jurors selected the work that made up the show: Dr. Clare Rogan, Curator of Prints and Drawings, Detroit Institute of Arts; Ms. Michelle Word, Director of Education, Broad Art Museum, MSU, East Lansing; and Amy Lazet, Visual Resources Specialist and Adjunct Professor, College for Creative Studies, Detroit.
