A Watched Pot Always Boils is an exhibit scheduled for April 2 through June 4. It will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment. According to the press release, this will be done by “looking through an intersectional lens at agency, access and opportunity in order to shed light on our what it takes to participate fully in American society, to tell one’s own story, and to shape the destiny of one’s community.” Submission cost is $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Apply at by Feb. 26.
