A St. Lawrence alumna is among the 15 current and former women members of the U.S. Senate included in a new exhibition at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington.

Susan Collins '75 (R-Maine) is in Melina Mara's Smithsonian Institution exhibit, "Changing the Face of Power: Women in the U.S. Senate," May 22 through September 7 in the institution's Arts and Industries Building.

Mara, a Tacoma, Washington, freelancer, spent three years putting together 38 candid shots of the 14 current female senators and one former senator because, she told the Associated Press, she believes "professional women too often are portrayed in domestic settings." Though they are in different parties - nine are Democrats and five Republicans - all 14 of the senators meet regularly to talk about issues and some of the photos picture these meetings.
