2020 Centennial Women’s Suffrage Celebration Exhibit

The Santa Cruz County Women’s Commission is proud to present our 2020 Centennial Women’s Suffrage Celebration. This year we celebrate 100 years of suffrage for women in the United States. The two components of the exhibit include artwork from local artists and a timeline.

The Be The Voice art wall features art from local women artists selected to re-create vintage suffrage posters with modern, inclusive imagery depicting issues that continue to impact marginalized groups. Additional information about the artists and their work is available in the virtual tour. All artwork is available for sale.

The Voices Through Time timeline explores California’s diverse history which proved foundational to California’s early adoption of women’s suffrage and created the momentum needed to support adoption of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The exhibit will be on display on the first floor of the County Government Building at 701 Ocean Street, Santa Cruz, CA until the end of the year or you can take a virtual tour here:

The Women’s Commission would like to thank artists Janet Allinger, Emily Aranda, Jan Carter, Ria Devine, Priscilla Martinez, and Jasmine Simone for creating the original artwork and donating its use to this project. Without your participation, this exhibit would not exist!

We would also like to express our sincere appreciation for the enthusiasm and insight of Professor Rosemary Brogan, Cabrillo College Women’s History Instructor, who provided source material and consulted with us on the Voices Through Time timeline.

Finally, we would like to extend a special thank you to Jennifer Wills at W+W Design, Inc., who created the virtual tour for the exhibit. If you are interested in a virtual tour for your business or event, you can reach Jennifer at, call (831) 332-3218 or visit
