Women of Change 2009
Women of Change is an art exhibit celebrating the women of Lincoln University and their contributions to society and was on display in Room 317 in Inman E. Page Library. It ran the whole of March and was available for viewing Monday through Friday, 8am until 5pm. It has now become an Online Exhibit. The exhibit presents images created by the students of the Drawing II course, which is taught by Rebecca Stonesanders.
Each image, of which there are eighteen, is a representation of a woman who affected their local Jefferson City community and Lincoln University in a meaningful way. Nine students crafted two images apiece, using various drawing mediums such as pencil or charcoal.
A reception was held on March 30, 2009 from 1pm until 2pm where people met the artists and visited with some of the women who are portrayed. Liz Wilson gave a brief welcome for the reception.
It is hoped that Women of Change will be an ongoing exhibit, held every March. Due to the limitations of time and the number of artists, only a few women were chosen for the 2009 exhibit. By having an ongoing exhibit, Lincoln artists have the opportunity to explore the wider range of historically important women in their art. Plans are already in place for the exhibit of 2010.
Thanks go to Alumni Affairs Benecia Williams for assisting with the exhibit by allowing the use of the frames by the students.
