Women’s Heritage Figures – Call for Artists!
Did you know that this year 2020 celebrates the 100th anniversary of Oregon’s ratification of Amendment 19 which placed women’s voting rights in the Constitution? TRAG has been asked to participate in a year long celebration celebrating women’s rights over the past 100 years. Clackamas County Heritage Council, CCHC, recently asked the Guild to create ten 5-foot cut out figures that depict women’s rights since the mid 1850’s.
These will have a cut out for the face so that the public can take pictures of themselves inside them. Think of the Suffragettes of the 1800’s, Rosie the Riveter from the 1940’s, the bra-burning hippies from the 1960’s, and the #metoo women’s march just 2 years ago. These are only some of the ideas we will be presenting to our artists and participating sponsors.
They will be installed in various places around town, and will receive recognition and exposure through social media, newspapers, and a possible “scavenger hunt”. Artists will be compensated for their work in creating the figures.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be a part of this exciting event either as an artist or a volunteer.
