Art Peace.  Its a simple idea from Allegany College of Maryland’s Peace Studies Club:  to have local artists of all abilities capture artistically what “peace means to them”.     This student-run club is inviting “peaces” in 2d, 3d and multimedia mediums which will be hung at the Allegany Arts Council’s Saville Gallery from August 22nd to the 31st.

The Democracy Commitment’s series of public events at Allegany College Maryland continues Wednesday, March 21, with a screening of “Iron Jawed Angels” and a discussion of the U.S. women’s suffrage movement that it dramatically portrays.

The feature-length movie recounts the little-known story of young suffragists Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, whose peaceful yet persistent protests in the 1910s provide the spark for a successful drive toward a constitutional amendment granting women the right to vote.

Hilary Swank (Paul) and France O’Connor (Burns) agitate for tactics within an established women’s group that prove to be too assertive for its older leaders, particularly Carrie Chapman Catt, played by Anjelica Houston.
