The Park Avenue Armory has joined forces with National Black Theatre to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the 19th amendment in a big way.

The organizations have tapped ten major institutions—The Apollo Theater; TheJuilliard School; La MaMa Experimental Theatre Company; The Laundromat Project; The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Museum of the Moving Image; National Sawdust; New York University (Department of Photography and Imaging, Tisch School of the Arts; Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity and Strategic Innovation; and Institute of African American Affairs & Center for Black Visual Culture); and Urban Bush Women—to each commission 10 self-identified women to create works to mark the centennial of women’s suffrage.

The initiative, 100 Years |100 Women, will consist of two events: one on February 15th, part of the Armory’s annual “Culture in a Changing America” symposium, and the second on May 16th. The events are part of “SOUL JOURNEY: NBT Beyond Walls,” the historic theater’s 51st anniversary season.
