Yellow House continues to foster its mission to connect art and action in its upcoming exhibit SUFFRAGE. The exhibit will spark civic engagement as it builds understanding of the importance of an informed vote on the issues that will drive us to the midterm polls. It is a moment to transform suffering and rage into progress through the power of an engaged electorate. Join us for a opening night, Tuesday October 9th from 6-9pm, exactly one month before the elections.
SUFFRAGE will fill the galleries at Yellow House with compelling, provocative, and socially impactful design and illustration by world-renowned political cartoonist Ed Hall, dozens of female and gender non-conforming designers from Jacksonville, and a selection from the national traveling exhibition “Power to the Polls” sponsored by Amplifier and the National Women’s March. Works will apply words and images to the complex collection of issues that will inform our votes on November 6th. The exhibition spotlights racial equity, voting rights restoration, universal healthcare, women’s rights, gun control, LGBTQ rights, economic parity, public education, disability rights, food politics, immigration, and a special focus on climate change and the rising waters in our own community.
