Justice, Not Roses

JusticeFlyerBESTThe year 2020 marks 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 2020 exhibit is 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 opening date for this exhibit.RevisedJusticeAD

The visual display has been created by ROMP’s logo artist Bryan Nicholaus Grey, who spent 4 weeks creating artwork and painting murals for the exhibit, and director Shaun Perkins worked with him to create an interactive poetic component in conjunction with the art.

At the opening celebration, exhibit booklets were given away, and the awards for the 19th Amendment Poem Contest and the Suffragist Doll Contest were given out.
