Historic women brought to life

The Folsom History Museum will presents its fourth annual Women in History celebration on Sunday. The event will be from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Folsom Community Center in Folsom.

The fund-raiser offers people the chance to learn about some amazing women in history. This year’s theme is “A Salute to the Arts: Passionate Women in History.” Melissa Stevenson of Biologues will provide first-person narratives of four famous women who challenged society’s view of women.

She will bring to life: Isabdora Duncan, who pioneered a free style of dance; Georgia O’Keefe, whose desert paintings won her recognition; Frida Kahlo, who overcame severe pain and found passion in art; and Lola Montez, a dancer of questionable morals.

The event will offer light refreshments, live music, and a silent auction. The cost is $20 per adult, $10 for youth 17 and under. The event is not recommended for children under 12. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are available at the museum. Call (916) 985-2707.
