How Far Have We Come?

Juried Exhibtion

The theme of this contest was inspired by the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, allowing women the right to vote and in conjunction with the Ann Arbor League of Women Voters 2020 women’s suffrage movement commemoration, which is especially poignant this election year. We ask artists to examine the progress, or lack of it, not just of women but all humans who continue to be discriminated against.

A delightful little museum nestled in residential Ann Arbor. Very interesting for anybody into the history of photography or local Ann Arbor history. Staff are friendly and the self guided tours are informative. Highly recommend!”
