HerFlag Dedication of Arkansas Stripe in Little Rock

HerFlag is a nationwide collaborative art project organized by artist Marilyn Artus to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment. Women artists from individual states were selected to create and add sections onto the flag in the order of the amendment’s ratification in state legislatures (AR #12). The dedication of the finished flag will take place in 2020, with final dimensions of 18’ x 26’ and the Arkansas stripe being 6” x 165”.  Contributing Arkansas artist Virmarie DePoyster will add her stripe at the HerFlag reception on Wed Aug 28 at 2 pm in the Old Supreme Court Room (2nd Floor) at the Arkansas State Capitol.  Arkansas performing artists Stephanie Smittle and Barbara Raney will perform original music created for the event that is free and open to the public.
