On August 18, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified, giving (many) women in the US the vote. In the Elisabet Ney Museum's online SUFFRAGE NOW: A 19th Amendment Centennial Exhibition, images by women photographers nationwide were juried and now displayed virtually. Elisabet Ney was a firebrand artist/activist who fought bravely for Suffrage but did not live to see it secured.
The historic home and studio of Elisabet Ney, a wildly iconoclastic German sculptor who moved to Austin in 1882, The Elisabet Ney Museum enthusiastically celebrates her art, her history and her legacy through exhibitions and events for the whole family. The museum enjoys numerous historic designations and is a cornerstone of the Hyde Park National Register Historic Neighborhood. Admission is free.
