Rosie The Riveter
By: Drennan Hayden/Art Teacher
In order to commemorate Women’s History Month (March) the students all chose an influential woman to illustrate. Student selection included Amelia Earhart, Ronda Rousey, The Queen of England, Rosa parks and many more. The illustrations were posted to the bulletin board with a large painting of Rosie the Riveter as the Centerpiece. For those who are unaware, Rosie The Riveter is a cultural icon of World War II, representing the women who worked in factories and shipyards during the war. The character has been an icon of women’s rights and empowerment ever since. Celebrities like Beyonce and Pink have paid tribute to the character in music videos and other performances. I really enjoy painting a new feature for the bulletin board every month because it energies the staff and student body. People naturally get excited about art, so putting something new on display for everybody to enjoy monthly is great pleasure of mine. Great job everybody!
