Oklahoma City artist Marilyn Artus, continuing the 14-month journey across the United States she began June 8, brings the Her Flag project to the state Capitol, 500 Woodlane St., Little Rock, for a sewing ceremony at 2 p.m. Wednesday.
Her Flag is a collaboration between Artus and 36 female artists, each currently living in one of the 36 states that ratified the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. By the time of the 100th anniversary of the amendment in 2020, the flag is expected to measure 18 feet tall by 26 feet wide and feature 36 stripes, each designed by an artist representing her state, in the order in which the state voted to ratify the amendment. Artus designed the star field.
