As part of its History Responds program, the New York Historical Society collected a range of artifacts from the Women’s March held on January 21, 2017. These artifacts include signs, sashes, pussyhats, and colorful props.
This exhibit works a year later to highlight some of the political and visual themes that emerged during this march, as well as the more than 500 sister marches that occurred across the United States. The exhibit also gives a look into the efforts of individuals and groups that worked behind the scenes of the protests.
Full-price tickets for the exhibit can be purchased at $21 for adults, $6 for kids ages 5 to 13, $13 for students, and $16 for seniors. Tickets can be purchased from the New York Historical Society’s website.
The NYHS is open Tuesday-Thursday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed on Mondays.
