Battle for the Ballot: Women and the Vote

A hundred years ago, the hard-fought 19th Amendment granted women the right to vote.

Join us for a celebration and exploration of voting rights and the fight for suffrage, and learn how racial discrimination prevented many women of color from accessing the vote. This afternoon of presentations and art features a special performance by Living Voices, “Hear My Voice.”

Presented in collaboration with the League of Women Voters of Washington.

Generous support provided by Washington State Historical Society and Washington State Women’s Commission’s Votes for Women Centennial Grant.

For disability accommodations, please contact programs@mohai.org two weeks prior to the event.

Location: MOHAI

Cost: Included with museum admission / Free for MOHAI members

Ian McMahon Exhibit

Ian McMahon received his MFA in Sculpture and Extended Media from Virginia Commonwealth University and his BFA in Ceramics from the New York State College of Ceramics, Alfred University. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship; a New York Foundation of the Arts Artist Fellowship; and the Virginia Groot Foundation Fellowship. From mobile tractor-trailers to abandoned warehouses and galleries, McMahon’s work confronts and transforms both unconventional and conventional spaces. His sculptures challenge the permanence of art and place through performative and material-focused temporal constructions. Currently living in Newburgh, New York he is also the co-founder and co-director of the Belfry, an artist-run exhibition venue. McMahon’s work has been shown both nationally and internationally at venues including Crane Arts, Philadelphia; The Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland; Pierogi Boiler Room, New York; G-Fine Arts, Washington, D.C.; Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts, Omaha; Suyama Space, Seattle; T & H Gallery, Boston, Tang Contemporary, Beijing, China; Practice Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA; among others.
