In Photos: Revolutionary Women

Photos by Amy Yang / North by Northwestern

Revolutionary Women, the newest exhibition in Main Library, presents portraits of women who “possessed the same trailblazing spirit as the American founders” in honor of this year’s One Book, Our Declaration. The women hail from different locations, different time periods, and different fields, but are united by their revolutionary spirit.

The exhibition consists of six prints, each of which features a few women who worked in a similar area, such as “Arts and Entertainment” or “Politics.” They are digitally collaged to form a group portrait. The colors of each photograph are rendered into a simplified palette, with jagged edges between color transitions instead of a smooth gradient.

The exhibit will be on display in One South in the Library until March 24, with an open house on January 18.
