“Our Story: Portraits of Change” is an interactive photo mosaic and art installation depicting a portrait of suffragist and civil rights activist Ida B. Wells—on display in Union Station in Washington, D.C., from August 24-28.
The 1,000 square-foot mosaic will be displayed on the marble floor, assembled from thousands of historical photos of suffragists, with each image telling its own story about the fight for women’s right to vote.
For those who cannot make it in person, an interactive online version of the mosaic is available for visitors to explore photos and learn more about the suffragists depicted.
Created by artist Helen Marshall of the People’s Picture, commissioned by the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, and produced by Christina Korp, Purpose Entertainment, “Our Story” commemorates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and women’s right to vote in the United States.
