This year marks the centennial of an important moment in women’s history: the passage of the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote. As is so often the case for historically marginalized groups, the number of artifacts left behind to tell this story is limited. But this absence also provides a unique opportunity to tell stories in different ways.

Dallas Heritage Village seeks artwork in all media that will explore issues or tell stories relating to at least one of the following subjects:

·         The women’s suffrage movement

·         Voting rights throughout history

·         Women’s political participation today

Dallas Heritage Village is an immersive history museum located in the historic Cedars neighborhood, just south of downtown. Home to over 20 relocated historic buildings, art will be exhibited inside selected historic structures.
