Click the link below for a printable version of the map/brochure of the LWV/Erie County Suffrage Centennial Erie Cemetery Self Guided Walk.  This event has been made available through the generosity of a friend of the League, an individual who gave her time for extensive research and planning to make this citizen education project possible. As you remember these incredible Erie County women of our past, honor them by voting in every election.  Perhaps this walk through history will lead you to do some historical research of your own to learn about this progressive era of American history, when women worked so tirelessly to secure this equal right.

 "Every Woman" 202o Centennial Art Exhibit, Arlore Studio

 Every woman is different, but we are inheritantly the same.  Local Erie County female artists examine their inner most feelings on the subject of women's suffrage, democracy, the vote and their place in society through their design in this mannequin art project. Mannequins and mannequin busts were used. The art mediums are diverse, as are the artists' syles and the artists themselves.  You are invited to the opening day exhibit on Friday. August 28th, 2020, 11 AM until 9 PM. The opportunity to register to vote will be offered. Lena Logvina is the proprietor of Artlore Studio and the manager of this unique suffrage centennial art project. A live stream of a Q/A session with artist Lena Logvina will be offered.  Please check the Artlore website for details.  https://www.artlorestudio.com/

 “Every Woman” is a collaborative project of Artlore and the League of Women Voters Erie County Chapter supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

Erie County State Legislators have been invited to attend.
