Join the Ramsey County Historical Society as we introduce our new online exhibition, Persistence: Continuing the Struggle for Suffrage and Equality, 1848-2020 with a very special online celebratory event on October 8, starting at 6:00 pm. This event will also celebrate the past year of RCHS & Gibbs Farm.

The RCHS exhibition: Persistence: Continuing the Struggle for Suffrageand Equality, 1848-2020, recognizes the champions at all levels of work who struggled to achieve voting rights for women in Minnesota, and whose example still serves activists in our community today. We commemorate these women and their work in Ramsey County and their contributions to American history and to the rights of women in this exhibition.

The exhibition will feature some of the Minnesota women who were leaders in the fight for suffrage and women’s rights, telling their stories through historical information and photos, and well as with original portraits commissioned by RCHS and created by local, Minnesota, South Dakota, and New York artists.

Join us online on October 8 as we celebrate these women and their accomplishments with a very special event. You’ll be able to talk with the artists who researched and created the portraits of these women and learn more about how the artists connected with their subjects, their artistic processes, and what they discovered in their research into these suffrage leaders.

You’ll also have a preview of the new online exhibition, Persistence: Continuing the Struggle for Suffrage and Equality, 1848-2020 created for everyone to view until it is safe to share it in person.

Registration is required, basic tickets are free. Upper level tickets available, benefits to be announced.

Watch for more information on the exhibition and the event coming soon!
