We Count: First-Time Voters

We Count: First-Time Voters

We Count: First-Time Voters, an exhibition featuring the work of five local artists inspired by the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment will open to the public July 31st

Originally scheduled to be on view in the Conte Community Arts Gallery in May, the exhibition went live as an online exhibit May 1, 2020, as the Museum was temporarily closed due to COVID-19. It will continue to be available online even after the exhibit is open to the public.

The exhibit highlights the history and challenges of voting in the United States and the first voting experiences of a diverse group of Nashvillians.

The artists—Beizar Aradini, M Kelley, Jerry Bedor Phillips, Thaxton Waters II, and Donna Woodley—connected with individuals and community groups across Nashville to learn about their voting experiences. The artists then created visual representations of those stories, through drawing, painting, printing, stitching, and other techniques. “Some topics that emerged from the conversations were disenfranchisement, awareness of everyday inequities, the challenges of the immigration and citizenship process, and the restoration of voting rights,” says Frist Art Museum assistant director for community engagement and exhibition curator Shaun Giles. “The resulting works of art embody both individual and collective insights on civic engagement and responsibility, as well as the systemic hurdles that prevent people from participating in our democracy.”
