Madison artist shares work as part of Women’s History Month
A Madison artist will share her work as part of Women’s History Month. Angie Christiansen, along with Grace Clark, will share stories of 20 suffragists brought to life by their artwork the Her Vote. Her Voice. Women’s history project. The free event called “History, Art, and Hidden Stories” will be held on Thursday, March 2nd at 6:30 p.m. in the Madison Public Library.
Christiansen volunteered more than 750 hours over a period of seven months, as well as her artistic talent, to create fourteen images celebrating the early South Dakota suffragist. She also mentored high school art student, Grace Clark, who created another six pieces. The 20 drawings feature leaders who helped women receive the right to vote. Fourteen of them are South Dakotans and six are national figures.
Christiansen is a community relations specialist with NorthWestern Energy. Through a grant from Arts Midwest, Christiansen will work to add another ten drawings to the collection, which will be distributed to fourth grade classrooms in the state.
