Dear PAN Listserv,


This is a reminder to apply for Cambridge’s Nineteenth Amendment Centennial Public Art Project.


“The right of the citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”


The City of Cambridge invites artists to submit qualifications for a $300,000 public art commission to commemorate the passage, in August 1920, of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. It granted the right to vote for women and resulted in the largest one-time addition to the American electorate, yet also left most women of color without access to the ballot box. A successful project will acknowledge the amendment’s complex history, its ongoing work in the shaping of American democracy, and the role of Cambridge women in the women’s suffrage movement. 


Deadline to submit qualifications to the online Cambridge Arts artist registry is 5 p.m. Sept. 30, 2019. Three or four finalists will be selected by an art jury and paid to develop concept proposals for a permanent installation in Cambridge.


More information on how to apply.


Let me know if you have any questions.
