Washington, D.C. (7News) — A local Washington, D.C artist, Maggie O'Neill, is using her talent to send a powerful message on the eve of the 2022 midterm elections.
The project she has been working on is called Vote for Your Daughter.
The display is 51 life-sized statues that were named fearless girls and put on display on the Capitol grounds in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.
The originals were hand painted.
O'Neil, the artist, hopes the form of art will make people think about the rights of women and especially their daughters.
"These are beautiful little girls in all shapes and sizes and all of them are Americans and all of them have lost their rights in at least 17 states," O'Neill said. "The reason why this is so important tonight is I do believe that art can get to people in a different way than propaganda."
The project was only on display for a few hours Monday afternoon.
She hopes to have the campaign travel to all 50 states.
