nevertheless, she persits

Core Dance, in partnership with Crystal Bridges and the University of Central Arkansas, commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment
guaranteeing and protecting a woman’s constitutional right to vote.

The dance/movement impulse for Nevertheless, She Persists has its origin in six works of art from the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art collection selected for their representation of the female image both prior to and following the passage of the 19th Amendment, heightening the sequestered role and the long journey advocating for the dignity, intelligence, and basic human potential of the female sex.
