“How Far We Have Come”
Juried Photographic Gallery Exhibition Commemorating the 100 Anniversary of the 19th Amendment
Help us celebrate 100 years of women voters! We will be commemorating women’s suffrage with a juried photograph exhibition at the Argus Museum in Ann Arbor, MI – the original building in which Argus cameras and other photography equipment was manufactured. The theme “How Far Have We Come” can be explored in a number of ways. Through photography, artists are asked to examine the progress, or lack of it, not just for women but for others who have been, and continue to be disenfranchised, or what the future may hold for these groups.
The topic of voting is particularly poignant this election year. “How Far Have We Come” photography exhibition is in conjunction with the League of Women Voters and over 60 Washtenaw County organizations partnering to commemorate the suffrage movement and the ratification of the 19th amendment making it a constitutional right for women across the nation to vote. The exhibition is sponsored by CameraMall, the Argus Museum and the Washtenaw County Historical Society.
Find out more about the competition and submit your photographs through CameraMall. Awards will be announced September 12, 2020. Opening Reception will be held at the Argus Museum, 525 West William Street, Ann Arbor MI, 48103, 5:30-8 pm, October 8, 2020. The exhibit will run through December 12, 2020. The Argus Museum is open 9-5, M-F, or by appointment.
