Golden Globes inspires ArtsWestchester

Sparked by the 2018 Golden Globes Awards’ emphasis on women’s actions and the power of their voices, ArtsWestchester has announced that an art exhibit that had been scheduled to close at the end of the month has been extended to Feb. 10. The exhibit is at ArtsWestchester’s gallery at 31 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains.

“Oprah Winfrey pronounced at the award ceremony that ‘a new day is on the horizon,’ with respect to women’s role in the political arena,” said Janet Langsam, ArtsWestchester’s CEO. “Our exhibit, ‘Give Us the Vote,’ celebrates the legacy of the suffragists’ and illuminates how the quest for equal access to the voting booth remains a significant issue for all of us.” 

Inspired by the centennial anniversary of the women’s right to vote in New York state, the contemporary exhibition examines the current state of voting rights in America and features new and commissioned works by 20 artists from the area.

ArtsWestchester gallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays noon to 5 p.m. and Saturdays noon to 6 p.m.
