The year 2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, securing a woman’s right to vote. In honor of that historic occasion, the Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry’s new exhibit will be a poetic exploration of women’s suffrage and its effects. Oklahoma ratified the 19th amendment on Feb. 28, 1920, and Feb. 28, 2020 is the planned opening date for this exhibit, though that is subject to change.
The visual display will be created by ROMP’s logo artist Bryan Nicholaus Grey, who will spend 4-5 weeks painting murals to cover the museum, and director Shaun Perkins will work with him to create an interactive poetic component in conjunction with the art.
At the opening celebration, the awards for the 19th Amendment Poem Contest will be given out. Stay tuned to this website or FOLLOW Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry for more details as they become available.
And……be sure to come and see the In the Bones exhibit before Dec. 15, 2019, when the exhibit will be taken down.
