Event Description:
South Dakota Her Flag stripe being added Jan. 30 at Cultural Heritage Center
 
PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota stripe of the national Her Flag project will be added Thursday, Jan. 30, at 7 p.m. CST the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre.
 
Her Flag project founder Marilyn Artus, an Oklahoma artist, will be sewing on the South Dakota stripe. Vermillion artist Klaire Lockheart, who designed the South Dakota stripe, will also be present. And Sioux Falls music educator Janelle Lafrentz will entertain while Artus is sewing.
 
Her Flag is a collaborative art flag that is being created through the course of its 14-month journey with Artus to the 36 states that ratified the 19th Amendment giving most women the right to vote in 1920. South Dakota became the 21st state to ratify the amendment, on Dec. 4, 1919. When completed, the flag will measure 18 inches tall by 26 inches wide.
 
“We are proud to serve as a host for this nationwide activity celebrating women’s suffrage,” said Jay Smith, museum director for the South Dakota State Historical Society. “Her Flag representatives will have a sales table at the event, and the museum will stay open from 4:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on January 30th so people will have an additional opportunity to see the new suffrage exhibit at the Cultural Heritage Center entitled “’The Right is Ours’:  Women Win the Vote.”
