Art > embroid(HER) Project

The embroid(HER) embroidery portrait project seeks to celebrate strong and influential women. Women from different backgrounds, races, religions, and career fields are chosen to embrace diversity.

The embroid(HER) project is sponsored by the Polly Crews Wood Scholarship provided by the Arkansas Chapter of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Portraits from this series have been featured in exhibitions in Arkansas.
