Illustration for the 19th Amendment by Beth Collins '22
On exhibit September 14 – October 17, 2018
On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created to form the government of the United States. Elmira College’s Gannett-Tripp Library observes this important day in our nation's history with this Constitution Day exhibition. In addition to facsimile reproductions of the handwritten Constitution and Declaration of Independence, the exhibit includes illustrations of various amendments drawn by Elmira College students. The most popular amendment to draw was the 19th Amendment: the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
Student artists include: Sydney Coffin ‘22, Beth Collins ‘22, Adrianna Cornell ‘22, Carly Eldridge ‘22, Isaac Gottheil ‘22, Ariella Haas ‘22, Brianna Haviland ‘22, Jennifer Heath ‘22, Stephanie Krom ‘22, Sydney Leonard ‘22, Mary McCafferty ‘22, Colin McLaughlin ‘22, Morgan Mordini ‘22, Rashaad Nurse ‘22, Evelyn Schoenberger ‘22, Joshua Smith ‘22, Cheyenne Stansfield ‘22, and Alyssa Waters ’22.
The exhibition also recognizes Banned Books Week (September 23 – 29) and the importance of the First Amendment’s guarantee of our freedom to read. Maybe you have read a banned book? Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn or Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five? Amazingly, even the Holy Bible has been banned. The First Amendment’s protection of free speech and press have kept these books in circulation and available for anyone to read.
