Seat at the Table Exhibition
March 1, 2020 - September 30, 2020Free
Learn about women’s right to vote and equality 100 years later
Visit this interactive exhibition to discover what it took for women to win voting rights and how gender inequality persists.
“Seat at the Table” is a modern installation in the lobby of the Kimmel Center. The exhibition commemorates the 19th Amendment — establishing women’s right to vote — and asks 100 years later, “Where are we now?” Visitors will experience the current status of gender equality in the United States through 3D infographic furniture.
“Tables” indicate the places where important decisions are made that affect society. “Seats” indicate the percentages of men and women at each of those tables. A wall of interactive screens introduces visitors to some of the pioneering women whose stories of breaking through gender barriers continue to inspire the women’s equality movement today.
“Seat at the Table” will be open to the public during Kimmel Center box office hours, 10am to 6pm daily, from March 1 through September 30, 2020. The exhibition is appropriate for adults of all ages and children age 10 and older.
The exhibition was commissioned for Women 100 by Vision 2020. The creator is Dome Collective, a woman-owned experience design studio.
