Monday, March 29, 2021 at 6:30 PM EDT
Tisha Dolton presents a concert of songs relating to the Women's Suffrage Movement to compliment the exhibition, Equali-tea: Suffragist Tea Cozies in Redwork, A Suffrage Centennial Exhibition. This concert was filmed and edited by librarian Kevin Rogan, and will be presented as a watch party followed by a Q&A with the singer. Please register through the events calendar at CrandallLibrary.org.
Dolton is a singer, historian, librarian, and embroiderer whose research focus lies in the music, art, craft, and theater of the women's suffrage movement. She also uses local newspapers to unearth forgotten suffragists in Warren, Washington, and Saratoga counties. In 2020 she received an Individual Artist Grant from the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council to create 42 embroidered portraits of New York State suffragists and provide community programming to compliment the exhibition currently online at CrandallLibrary.org.
Equali-tea: Suffragist Tea Cozies in Redwork is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency Decentralization Program with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; administered by the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council (LARAC).
