Georgia O'Keeffe 1925:  From Petunias to Skyscrapers

Marleen Hoover, Visual Art Department, San Antonio College

Artist Georgia O'Keeffe did not "look" like the image of the 1920s flapper, but she was every bit the sexually liberated feminist.  Although she did not define herself in that way, her intensely close-up flower paintings and her New York skyscrapers describe this important part of her identify.

The International Conference of 1916 in San Antonio:  Women Coming Together Across Borders
Juanita Luna Lawhn
English Department, San Antonio College

The International Women’s Conference of 1916 in San Antonio was only a beginning in the efforts that women have put together to be involved in the social, economic, and political issues of this country.  It is beyond one's imagination to conceive that such an international conference of its stature took place in San Antonio at the turn of the century.

Laboring for Love / The Silent Path of Power:  Women of "Little Mexico" in San Antonio, Texas
Margaret Greco, Visual Art Department, San Antonio College

The strictures of urban financial collapse that catapulted the onset of the Depression led the women of San Antonio's "little Mexico" to work increasingly within the home -- hand sewing, embroidering, and producing delicately drawn work for the women and children of more prosperous families.  The commercial labor of those women rested on a foundation of love's labors:  devotion to spiritual entities, the dead, and harmony within the home.
