Resurrecting Matilda and Uncommon Curriculum

We were delighted to spend a day making art with fascinating women at the Brand Library and Art Center.  Amelia Earhart was there.  So was Victoria Woodhull, Nellie Bly, Tina Modotti, Gloria Steinem, Anne Frank, as well as poets, spys, warriors, and Queens. Allison took photos of women dressed as their heroines and Mary Anna led a workshop collaging accomplished women into their rightful spot in history textbooks.  It was part of the rich programming that took place during The Collectivists, an exhibition curated by the fabulous Kara Tome, who spent the day in character as Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven.
