WIPB and DOMA team up for online screening event
What: THE VOTE Online Screening and Discussion
When: September 25, 2020 6:30 PM EDT
The David Owsley Museum of Art (DOMA) at Ball State University will open its new exhibit “20/20: Twenty Women Artists of the Twentieth Century” on Sept. 24. The centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment presented an ideal opportunity to examine the visibility of women artists in museums. To celebrate the opening of the exhibit, the museum is partnering with WIPB for a special screening of the first part of the PBS documentary THE VOTE on Friday, Sept. 25, at 6:30 p.m.
The online event will take place on OVEE (ovee.itvs.org), a virtual theater that allows participants to watch together and chat live with friends, fans and experts. All you need to participate is a computer or iPad and an internet connection.Before the event, you can click here (https://ovee.itvs.org/diagnostics) to run a test to ensure OVEE works properly on your computer.
Joining us to chat during the screening will be local experts Emily Johnson of the Ball State University History Department, Linda Hanson of the League of Women Voters and Courtney Jarrett of Ball State’s Women’s and Gender Studies program. Tania Said, Education Director for DOMA, will also be in the chat room to answer questions about the exhibit.
THE VOTE tells the dramatic culmination story of the hard-fought campaign waged by American women for the right to vote, a transformative cultural and political movement that resulted in the largest expansion of voting rights in U.S. history.
The DOMA exhibit presents a selection of paintings, photographs, prints, sculpture, and architectural drawings from the museum’s collection, along with loans from Ball State’s Andrew Seager Archive of the Built Environment, as a lens to more clearly view the accomplishments of twenty American women artists of local, regional, national, and international prominence.
