"Women in 29th Century Arlington," an exhibition documenting the contributions of Arlington women to their community, opened recently at the Arlington Historical Museu, 1805 S. Arlignton Ridge Rd.
Items on display range from historic photographs, testimonials, news clippings and books to an oil painting by Peggy Fisher entitled "Rossly in Transition."
Also included is the shingle of Dr. Virginia Lane, Arlington's first female physician, the minutes of the formative meeting of the Arlington County Leagu eof Women Voters, and a photograph of Laura Boldin, the first woman to vote in Arlington County.
The show was assembled by Kathy Holt, curator of the museum, in participation with the Virginia Women's Cultural History Project.
It falls into eight categories: medicine, education, civic affairs, arts, business, politics, dress, and the military during World War II.
Among the women pictured in the exhibit are the fist public health nurse, a founder of WETA, a legislator who championed school integration before a hostile legislature in Richmond, and generations of teachers.
The exhibit is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and from 2 to 5 p.m. Sundays until July 14.
Group tours are available by request. For information, call 528-1548.
