- In partnership with Carolina Performing Arts, we present 1971.
The 19th Amendment—which opened the door for many women to vote—was not ratified in North Carolina until 1971. In 1971, the inaugural outdoor art installation by Carolina Performing Arts, large-scale projections will pay homage to women who have blazed a trail in the work for voting rights in our state.
The installation involves projecting the faces of individual women onto the trees and landscape at various locations around Chapel Hill. The library will be a location for the duration of the project.
Part of acclaimed Australian projection artist Craig Walsh’s Monuments series, subjects were chosen by a curatorial panel representing the Carolina Women’s Center, Chapel Hill Public Library, and the Southern Oral History Program. We hope to be joined by some of the women depicted in the installation.
We frequently take photos and videos at our events. Here's what we do with them.
