Sister Bay’s Pioneering Women featured in “Garments of our Foundation”

A unique look at some of Sister Bay's founding women is on display now at the Sister Bay Liberty Grove Library.

The presentation by the Sister Bay Historical Society features portraits of ten compelling women from the village's history. The renderings were done by award-winning theatrical and opera costume designer Kärin Kopischke after months of research, writing, sketching, painting and fabric-swatching.

Kopischke says she wanted to create something to draw attention to women in the county's history after finding the available information lackluster.

Kopischke worked with members of the Historical Society and interviewed other Door County residents to compile a list of possible subjects. Her focus was to bring to life the stories of a variety of women previously unnoticed by the history books.

The women featured have a history spanning from the 1840s to 1920s and range in socioeconomic as well as geographic background.

The works were commissioned in tandem with the Sister Bay Centennial Celebration and are on display now through the end of 2012.
