Portraits of Powerful Gals: Happy Galentine's Day

This is our small tribute to Galentine's Day, the fictional-turned-real holiday celebrated on February 13 (the day before the more mundane and infamous Valentine's Day).

To quote the great Leslie Knope on the TV show “Parks and Recreation” from which Galentine's Day was born, “Oh, it’s only the best day of the year… Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas”.

And so we present some powerful ladies, from Washington’s State Art Collection. Have a great day!
