In celebration of Women’s History Month, Deerfield-based artist Kimberly Perl’s “Power With Purpose: Women Who Lead” series will be displayed at 12 businesses in the Village throughout the month of March as part of the Community Relations Commission’s Heritage Month Program.
The Village is acknowledging Women’s History Month in March by inviting members of the community to visit these portraits. All of the pieces will be available to see at a preview party where residents can meet the artist and learn more about the paintings and women featured in them at 5 p.m. Friday, March 10, at the DBR Chamber of Commerce, 570 Lake Cook Road, Suite 114.
The public is invited to come view and be inspired by these amazing portraits of 12 powerful women, some of whom have perennially inspired the generations before us, and some who are making history even as we speak. One of these moving portraits featuring Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been shown at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and the Houston Holocaust Museum. Participating businesses and their featured painting include:
- Scout & Molly's: Tirana Burke
- The Wild Roaster: Mei-Ann Chen
- Nothing Bundt Cakes: Peggy Whitson
- Italian Kitchen: Ruth Bader Ginsburg
- Deerfield’s Bakery: Malala
