Rochester-based artist and internationally-known muralist Sarah Rutherford's years-in-the-making mural series, "Her Voice Carries" was an artistic quest to understand how the women of Rochester have come to shape the city. A documentary film named for her mural series explores the stories of the women in the murals, and Rutherford's own journey of creating the large-scale works. The captivating story brings to light the extraordinary work done by ordinary people in our community, bringing together dramatic visuals, compelling storytelling, and inspirational individuals. Rutherford's "Her Voice Carries murals" are installed at the Memorial Art Gallery and around the city of Rochester. See locations online at hervoicecarries.blog.
