CANCELLED Curating “Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence” with Kate Lemay
November 14, 2019, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.
Historian Kate Clarke Lemay of the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery speaks about organizing a major exhibition on the history of women’s suffrage.
In organizing this major exhibition, Lemay faced several critical problems, including how to create a more inclusive narrative, and how to find appropriate objects that would tell this history. During this lecture, Lemay will relate how she addressed these issues, and guide members of the audience through the process of curating a major exhibition at the Smithsonian as part of the #BecauseOfHerStory initiative on American women’s history.
