Artist Marilyn Artus is bringing an ambitious project to the Council Chamber of the Old State House.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment which guaranteed the right to vote regardless of sex, she is visiting each of the 36 states that ratified the Amendment within the first year. In each state, Marilyn has enlisted a local female artist to create a stripe to be sewn onto a massive flag.

On July 25, Marilyn will sew on the Massachusetts stripe at the Old State House, accompanied by the stripe’s designer, Massachusetts artist Kari Percival. The event will also feature a performance by author of She the People, Jen Deaderick.

We are thrilled host this inspiring piece of art, and to celebrate the enduring stories and contributions of women to the fabric of America.

This event is free.
