Rosie the Riveter world record set in Michigan . Woman and Girl Power . Changed the world

I got to be part of a freaking wonderful day and I’ll be in Guinnessnnes Book of World Records.  Ypsilanti, Michigan and support the Yankee Air Museum this Saturday!  I didn’t get to be there two years ago and jumped at the chance to go on a no wedding weekend!!!

Rosie the Riveter is a cultural icon of World War II, representing the women who worked in factories and shipyards during World War II, many of whom produced munitions and war supplies.[1]These women sometimes took entirely new jobs replacing the male workers who joined the military. Rosie the Riveter is used as a symbol of feminism and women’s economic power.[3]

I wanted to capture all the different women and the few men too, who were celebrating the women who changed how we saw ourselves and moved women into a new realm of possibility!  What was extra special is there were 58 “original” Rosies, women who changed the world and helped us to win World War II while doing it!!

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
