Raising Our Voice: Empowering WomenRaising Our Voice: Empowering Women

Virtual Tour Available at: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=H7cEPKKHZyd

Women won their right to vote in the United States 100 years ago.  Much has changed since then.  This exhibit will both educate and celebrate women’s voices.  Our main gallery will feature a historic synopsis of women’s suffrage in the State along with the 90th anniversary show of Women Painters of Washington. We are honored to host this celebration of the female voice.

The Women Painters of Washington art show includes art available for purchase. 30% of sales proceeds will go to support the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center. Purchases may be made at the Museum’s Guest Services desk. The art will remain the Museum for the duration of the exhibit, and will be available for pick up after February 6, 2021.

Thank you for our Presenting Sponsors: Icicle Fund, Washington State Historical Society, Woods Art Fund, Speidel Bentsen LLP, and ANONYMOUS. This exhibit is presented in partnership with the Women Painters of Washington

On January 20th, 1921 the Wenatchee Rotary Club met for their inaugural meeting. Since then the service club(s) have campaigned for youth services and opportunity throughout the valley, dedicating a large portion of their fundraising to parks and recreational opportunities. They also focus on health and basic human needs globally contributing to schools and hospitals abroad.
