ONLINE: When Women Lost the Vote

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 6:30pm
Event location: 
ONLINE

When Women Lost the Vote
Presented by the Museum of the American Revolution

When Women Lost the Vote program is a hybrid online experience: a lecture, a short virtual tour of the museum's newest exhibition of the same name, and brief Q&A.

Millions of American women were granted the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which marks its centennial in 2020. But more than a century earlier, women and free people of color legally held the vote in New Jersey for more than thirty years.

The Museum of the American Revolution will explore the little-known history of the nation’s first women voters and examine the political conflicts that led to their voting rights being stripped away.

Don't miss it!  This program is FREE and open to the public.  Registration is required at when-women-lost-the-vote.eventbrite.com to receive the Zoom link to attend.

Inside Cave Paintings Sept 16 2020 Sign up to attend via Zoom

Modern human artistic expression is evident in the form of hundreds, if not thousands, of enigmatic images painted onto the walls of caves in southern France. Early modern human occupation(s) of these painted caves range in date from about 15,000 years ago to as much as 30,000 years ago, an astounding depth of time.

Our capability to express ourselves symbolically through art is among the features that make our species unique in the animal kingdom. Scholarly research into the origins of human art plays an important role in anthropological research to this very day.

Why produce art at all?  Can we, from our viewpoint tens of thousands of years later, even understand the intent of the Paleolithic artisans who created these images deep inside remote caves?

Over the course of four summers excavating Neanderthal archaeological sites elsewhere in southwest France, Dr. Steve had the opportunity to visit several of these remarkable caves, including going inside two of them.  This lecture takes us on a journey to three of these remarkable sites: Font de Gaume, Lascaux, and Chauvet. The images you will see we can relate to, however, can we relate to “why” these images existed?
