Marilyn Lysohir: Good Girls 1968
March 5 – May 30, 2010
Missoula Art Museum (MAM)
Good Girls 1968 is an installation that consists of over 160 ceramic portraits of young women with whom Marilyn Lysohir graduated from high school. The installation involved reconnecting through hours on the phone with many of the girls captured in the portraits. Lysohir is a renowned ceramicist and although Good Girls 1968 is grounded and created from one person’s point of view, this exhibition transcends the personal and discovers its impact while touching the audience’s cultural memory and reminiscences.
