SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A new addition at the Springfield Museums is highlighting the importance of diversity in leadership.
The “Standing on Their Shoulders” digital artwork set was unveiled Sunday, as part of the Museums’ “Voices of Resilience” exhibit.
The artist, Bay Path University student Cora Swan, is the granddaughter of former state representative Benjamin Swan. She described the piece as a way to recognize young female activists who are working to make real change.
“I was encouraged to make an art piece that focused a lot more on young women around my age or younger who started standing up for progressiveness and social change,” Swan told 22News.
Voices of Resilience celebrates the intersecting lives of women in Massachusetts and beyond who have changed the course of history.
