Alumna’s Project Celebrates Centennial of 19th Amendment

Keliy Anderson-Staley, ‘Daniela’

Meg Griffiths, BA ’04, and co-founder Frances Jakubek created A Yellow Rose Project, a photographic collaboration to celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment. More than 100 women across the U.S. participated, creating images in response, reflection, and reaction from contemporary perspectives, 100 years after the vote for women was ratified.

Griffiths is an assistant professor of photography at Texas Woman’s University in Denton. Her still life submission titled ‘Ethel Byrne, 185 hours, 1917’ is pictured below.

Lily Brooks, MFA ’14, is a participating photographer in the project and an assistant professor of photography at Southeastern Louisiana University. Pictured below is Brooks’ submission, ‘Henriette DeLille.’

A Yellow Rose Project is on display in 2020 at the Colorado Photographic Arts Center in Denver, Indiana University in Bloomington, and the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, and will also be collected in a limited-edition book.
