NORMAN ROCKWELL MUSEUM PRESENTS
ROSE O’NEILL: ARTIST AND SUFFRAGETTE
Special exhibition celebrates the 2020 Women’s Vote Centennial, on view through September 27
Rose O’Neill: Artist & Suffragette is a special installation created with recently acquired artwork, generously donated by The Rose O’Neill Foundation to Norman Rockwell Museum’s permanent collection of illustration art. This exhibition is especially meaningful as August 18, 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote. Rose O’Neill (1874-1944) was strongly devoted to the cause, taking part in protests, public speaking, creating protest signs, magazine illustrations, and postcards advocating for women.
Born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and raised in rural Nebraska, self-taught illustrator O’Neill broke new ground for women in the worlds of art and publishing.
The Historical Society of Woodstock (NY) will sponsor an exhibit about Edna Kearns and Elisabeth Freeman, early women’s rights activists, during September 2020. Watch for updates here on SuffrageCentennials.com
