While we here at Girl Museum enjoy producing quality, meaningful exhibitions centered around girls and girlhood, we also like working with visitors to create exhibitions with a more personal message. One of the ways we do that is by creating interactive exhibitions such as the Heroines Quilt. Initially started here on the Girl Museum blog to celebrate Women's History Month in March 2010, the photos and stories submitted by Girl Museum staff, interns, and visitors were digitally "stitched" into a quilt as an ongoing exhibition. And although Women's History month has passed us for this year, we're still eager to add squares to our quilt of extraordinary women. If there's a heroine in your life that you'd like to honor, whether she's historical, fictional, famous, or just special to you, we'd love to hear about her and add her to the Quilt!
If you're interested in creating a submission for the Heroines Quilt exhibition, please email a photograph and a short paragraph (about 250 words) to the Head Girl.
