BIOGRAPHY

Two Girls Working is a collaboration between two artists, Tiffany Ludwig and Renee Piechocki. Between 2001 and 2006, they traveled across the United States asking groups of women to respond to the question: What do you wear that makes you feel powerful? They talked with more than 500 women and girls, from age four to ninety-two, and from a wide range of backgrounds. What emerged was a wider dialogue about the expectations and limitations placed upon them by their affiliation with a specific gender, culture, race, class, or profession. The result was a project called Trappings: Stories of Women, Power and Clothing. The project included the interviews, exhibitions around the country, a book, and a web site.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

The collection consists of postcards, posters, and other publicity and printed material about Trappings.
