DEPARTMENT NEWS AND EVENTS 

Please join us for a very special event. Meet the Barnard alumna who inspired the sea of hand–knit pink hats at the historic Women’s Marches that took place around the country and world on January 21. Krista Suh ’09, co-founder of the Pussyhat Project, will share her story. Suh credits her Barnard Art History education as the inspiration for the pink cat-eared hat that has become such an iconic symbol of the 600+ marches that it was recently featured on the covers of both The New Yorker and Time Magazine. They will be joined by two of the women who mobilized the grassroots movement, Pearl Chin, founder of the Upper West Side's beloved Knitty City and Brittney Bailey manager of Purl Soho, the legendary New York City yarn store. Moderated by Anne Higonnet, Professor of Art History, this conversation is sponsored by Barnard's Department of Art History and BCRW.
