Beyond Suffrage: A Century of New York Women in Politics displayed at the Museum of the City of New York from October 2017 to August 2018.

Beyond Suffrage catalogs women's political activism in New York over the last 100 years — well beyond earning the right to vote. The exhibition features the stories of well-known political figures and lesser known activists who helped change women's role in politics. I served as an exhibition designer with the Pure+Applied team, in collaboration with the Museum of the City of New York.
