A community-based art project that seeks to connect communities through pulling up a chair and sharing stories of positivity about Strong Women of Toledo.
With this design, I was really trying to bridge two parts of Marilyn’s great life story. Early in her career, she was trained as an engineer during WWII when women were needed to fill positions as men left for the service. Years later after earning a masters degree, Marilyn became a traveling librarian in the Toledo area.
This is visually referenced in the design with an abstracted Rosie The Riveter poster. The design is pulled together with the addition of a bookmark shown peaking out of the streaks of color that resemble pages of a book.
