We Must Be Fearless!

02:30 pm to 04:00 pm
Monroe County History Center, 202 E 6th Street
http://www.monroehistory.org

We Must Be Fearless: The Woman’s Suffrage Movement in Indiana by Anita Morgan is a popular history of the women’s suffrage movement in Indiana and tells the story of the sixty-nine-year struggle for the right to vote in the state. The people who acted, what they did, and the results of their efforts are the focus. Through this story, it also places the state’s women more firmly in the history of Indiana, the Midwest, and the nation. Author Anita Morgan will present her continuing research for the Indiana Women’s Suffrage Centennial in honor of the release of her new book.

Artist Talk: Robert Baines

04:00 pm to 05:00 pm
Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University
https://events.iu.edu/artmuseum/view/event/date/20200328/event_id/114418

Join us for a visiting artist talk with Robert Baines.
Renowned Australian goldsmith Robert Baines has been studying and reviving Bronze Age goldsmith techniques for 40 years. Interested in the ways in which jewelry is connected to culture and history, Baines explores these ideas in works that are whimsical, intriguing, and beautiful in their complexity. Through the presentation of a fictitious narrative that conveys the enigma of jewelry as material evidence of authentic history, the works in this exhibition challenge ideas about what is “wearable.”

This program is supported in part by the generosity of Rita Grunwald.
