‘Women of Dorchester County’ mural honors trailblazers who’ve impacted the world

CAMBRIDGE, Md. – The paint is officially dry on the Cambridge Community Art Foundation’s Women of Dorchester County mural.

Bridget Cimino was the lucky artist selected among 17 others to bring the creation to life.

The mural is a tribute to the trailblazing women from the area who made a lasting impact on the world.

Harriet Tubman, Civil Rights Activist Gloria Richardson Dandridge,  and advisor to President Lincoln Anna Ella Carroll are just some of the women featured in the mural.

Cimino tells 47ABC, she hopes this bold and colorful statement inspires young girls that they too can leave their mark on the world. “I was always told when I was younger that if I went to art school,  I would never be able to use this in real life and it would be a waste of money. I love proving people wrong about that,” Cimino said.

“To see all these different kind of women in an area as small as Dorchester County Maryland, there’s so many people who made a big impact.”
