Getting real: CHS students join Robert Shetterly in truth-teller exhibition


“I choose to paint RBG because I have always looked up to her and
the role she played in gaining many of the rights that women deserve. She is fearless, powerful, and competent, proving women can do anything men can do—and do it better too. She is able to navigate the broken system and stand up to it, exposing its flaws, which takes a lot of bravery and wisdom. She has given me the confidence to say that I am a feminist and have pride in that,” says Lucy Armengol, a student at Charlottesville High School. Image courtesy the artist
