- Admire the 2,000+ pink pompoms made by students and community members that make up an installation of a women’s symbol cascading down the front of the building.
- Take a photo with Women’s Suffrage-inspired signs, hats and sashes at a selfie station.
- Design and assemble their own Women’s Movement-inspired button
- Create a colorful pompom bookmark.
- Enjoy complimentary appetizers and drinks.
The museum will debut its featured exhibit, “Crafting Feminism: Textiles of the Women’s Movement,” highlighting how textiles have played a role through the waves of feminism.
See you there, San Diego!
