Redefining Representation: The Women of the 116th Congress

JAN 25 – MAR 29

For the first time in Michigan and only the third time in the United States, Elizabeth Herman’s and Celeste Sloman’s striking images of the 131 women now serving in Congress comes to the Center. The traditionally male art form of portraiture is turned on its head. This exhibit evokes the imagery we are used to seeing in the halls of power, but places people not previously seen as powerful starkly in the frames.
