The SHE Society’s inaugural season is designed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment which guaranteed and protected women’s constitutional right to vote. In the spirit of gratitude to DVAC/The Contemporary Dayton’s founding mothers, we invite you to help support our critical exploration of Contemporary Art by Women Artists of the Midwest.
