A Yellow Rose Project

The UI Photography Program, in partnership with the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies and Gender, and Women’s and Sexuality Studies, welcomes A Yellow Rose Project to the School of Art and Art History. Including work by over 100 women, the project is a photographic collaboration of responses, reflections, and reactions to the 100-year anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

The photographs in this collection express a rich, broad approach to the topics of women’s rights and the vote, the rewriting and erasing of our history, and speak to obstacles faced by women in 1920, as well as the issues women still face today. The women participating in the project represent a range of cultures, backgrounds and generations and are at varying stages in their artistic careers. 

Free and open to the public:

Aug. 29-Sept. 30: A Yellow Rose Project in Levitt Gallery, Art Building West

Sept. 9 at 5 p.m.: Opening talk and reception with curators Frances Jakubek and Meg Griffiths, Levitt Gallery, Art Building
