February 2019 Her Flag Project: Artist Collaborator for the State of Idaho Her Flag is a brainchild of artist Marilyn Artus to celebrate the 100 years of the ratification of the 19th Amendment: the right of women to vote in the US. Women artists from the 36 states that ratified the amendment were chosen to create art to represent their state's suffrage story. The art will be in the form of a stripe that will be printed and sewn together when Marilyn will visit each state until August 2020, the 100th year. I was chosen to represent Idaho based on the art portfolio I submitted.
