Telling Her Story: New Acquisitions
To commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of women’s suffrage in America in 2020, AIHS is showcasing Telling Her Story: New Acquisitions, an exhibition of objects collected over the past four years that highlight women’s lives. You will learn about Ann Eliza Bleecker who wrote poems about her life during the American Revolution, and about Ursula Garreau (Ursula of Switzerland®), an internationally known dress designer. A manual typewriter used by award-winning author and community activist Athena Vavuras Lord is displayed with the books she wrote for her four children about growing up in a Greek immigrant family in Albany and Cohoes. The exhibition also includes works of art by contemporary artists Susan Hoffer, Dana Matthews, Victoria Palermo, and Estelle Yarinsky.
