Staff Pick: ‘Personal is Still Political’

Politics are as personal as it gets, and artists Skylar Smith and Lisa Simon know it. For those who say they don’t care about politics, Smith and Simon’s collaborative exhibition will give you a lot to think about, especially if you are a woman. Smith dives into history, from women suffrage marches to civil rights protests. Simon also revisits history, especially the early 20th century, where she gleans her creative expressions from advertising and art history. The closing reception is Saturday, March 31 from 1-3 p.m. Activities during the reception include the making of “Nasty Woman” buttons and suffrage sashes. Activist Marsha Weinstein will lead a Louisville Suffrage Walking Tour at 2 p.m.
