ART IGNITES HISTORY! See and experience powerful art created by young artists and inspired by remarkable women from history.

Many of these original artworks – whether exhibited, written, or performed – highlight the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, honor the unfinished legacy of the women’s suffrage movement, or highlight civically engaged women featured in the New Bedford Whaling Museum project Lighting the Way: Historic Women of the SouthCoast. All pieces included in the IGNITE Showcase are eligible for a cash award based on their relevance, creativity, and originality.
