Mother of Exiles
The Emma Lazarus poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty is a not so gentle reminder of what our country has long cherished. We are a melting pot of cultures and countries that is currently challenged in these troubling times as to how to continue upholding these values while protecting our shores. So it seemed fitting that, as a part of my Celebration of Women series, the Mother of Exiles (as the Statue is called in the full poem) be represented. Come see the complete collection of women at the Sawdust Art Festival until September 3, Booth #202.

  1. I just printed out Emma Lazarus' poem from the statue, to put inside the Chelsea Clinton Children's books I bought for the little gurls in my life. It's called She persisted. It's about the women heros in our county. Like Sally Ride, Sonia Sotomeyer....etc.
