I spent my sophomore year participating in a one year residential leadership program that focused on teaching and learning women empowerment. Together with fifteen other girls, we engaged in weekly self-led discussions with on-campus faculties, and worked on a year-long, collaborative capstone project that involved interviewing women in our every day lives and their sharing their stories of "breaking the glass ceiling" and empowering others around them.
This long sleeve shirt is one of my first silkscreen printmaking project. The design takes a spin on the leadership program name, "Longman" by changing it into "Longwoman." The back design takes inspiration of Evelyn Beatrice Longman's sculpture outside of our dorm that originally features a kneeling winged male angle of mercy.
A total of forty of this long sleeve shirt were hand printed for this project, with one of them now a part of the Loomis Chaffee School archive.
