To celebrate Women's History Month, the Visual Arts department launched their Sister Settings student installation this week. Inspired by Judy Chicago's "The Dinner Party," the installation is of a dinner party set for 12 women of great achievement that may or may not have been given her due historically. The table is set with a handmade tablecloth with 12 place settings, each consisting of a printed silkscreen of drawn placemat with flatware, a linen napkin, a uniquely painted ceramic plate and goblet, and a name runner identifying the woman honored.
In addition to the student installation, AACC's Communications department hosted the Soapbox Sisters on Tuesday. Students, staff and faculty performed dramatic readings of contemporary and historically significant speeches and poems from a diverse group of women.
