The Tampa Museum of Art’s popular midday program continues online. Join Joanna Robotham, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Brittny Bevel, Education Curator, and Kessanda Abel, Community Engagement Manager, for a brief discussion of Elena del Rivero: Home Address and women’s rights as represented in the collection at TMA.
Elena del Rivero: Home Address is a multi-platform initiative commemorating women’s suffrage convened by Dr. John A. Tyson of the University of Massachusetts Boston. For the project, del Rivero has created 19 flags—inspired by dishtowel designs—in recognition of the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment, which legislated women’s right to vote in the United States. Her multiples, emblazoned with a common abstract pattern, will be hosted by distinct institutions across the nation in 2020 and 2021.
In 2020, the Tampa Museum of Art is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment and women’s right to vote. This year, a series of exhibitions presented by the Museum, including Modern Women: Modern Vision, Works from the Bank of America Collection, HerStory: Stories of Everyday Women and Ancient Heroines, and Elena del Rivero: Home Address, look at the role of women in society and the arts.
