NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Tennesseans may soon notice new murals going up around the state.
And they're all to celebrate 100 years of women's voting rights.
The non-profit DMA Events is lining up a mural festival called Walls for Women. So far, 10 murals will go up between July 18th and August 18.
The women's suffrage movement began in July 1848. The fight ended in August 1920 in Nashville, Tennessee. A monument now sits in Centennial Park, commemorating the historic movement.
Two of the artists involved in the Walls for Women festival include Tara Aversa and Kristin Llamas from Nashville.
"A lot of the walls you'll see out and about are men painting them, but there are so many talented female artists who just don't necessarily get the opportunities men do so we've really focused on seeking those people out,” DMA Events Founder Kristin Luna said.
DMA Events is taking requests for murals for about another week. Click here for their website.
