Celebrating the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage in America
The New Britain Museum of American Art and
Stanley Black & Decker welcome you to join us for a
month-long community celebration of the centennial
of women’s suffrage in America. Throughout the
month of August, the NBMAA, in partnership with
presenting sponsor Stanley Black & Decker, will offer
a dynamic series of virtual programs honoring this
historic milestone and all those who have fought
for opportunity and change. Among the programs featured will be:
• crowdsourced poetry project
• a discussion inspired by the Museum’s 2020/20+ Women @ NBMAA initiative featuring NBMAA Director & CEO Min Jung Kim, Stanley Black & Decker President & CEO Jim Loree, and others
• hands-on art activities for makers of all ages
• voter registration resources, and more!
Deadline August 7
As part of this month-long community celebration, NBMAA and Stanley Black & Decker invite you to contribute to a crowd-sourced poem facilitated by celebrated Connecticut poet Ginny Lowe Connors.
Please write a few (1-4) lines of original poetry from the following prompt: “What the Right to Vote Means to Me.” The final piece will be performed and launched on August 26 (Equality Day) on NBMAA digital platforms.
Submit poetry here by August 7: https://forms.gle/KiE5ByP9qx3pKE879
