  Richmond Art Center Features Rosie Tribute
January 25, 2004
 

The newest exhibit at the Richmond Art Center pays tribute to local Rosies -- heroines who held down the homestead during World War II. Photos featuring six outstanding East Bay residents who worked the shipyards during the war will be on display, including Ruth Morgan's photo of Lucy Cortez. Along with the visual display are creative writing samples, interviews and other history. A reception will be held 3-6 p.m. Feb. 7.

The Rosie the Riveter Oral History Project tells the stories of six outstanding Richmond-area women who courageously worked in the shipyards during World War II. Produced by students of Kennedy High School, the exhibit features interviews, creative writing, photographs, and the history of "Rosie the Riveter."
