Sunnyvale's K3 Sisters Band featured in Smithsonian Exhibit
In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, the Smithsonian debuted a new exhibit “Girlhood (It’s Complicated)” at the Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.
The museum reached out to Sunnyvale sisters Kaylen, Kelsey and Kristen Kassab and their K3 Sisters Band in addition to a dozen other female artists, athletes, and public figures across the country that have made significant contributions in their fields as a representation of the progress American girls and women are achieving since gaining the right to vote a century ago.
As a result, the exhibits creators were moved to include the sisters’ coming of age music video “My Time” courtesy of their family owned Bruce Ray Productions record label.
The exhibit which also includes many female related artifacts and historical-cultural memorabilia is now open at the Smithsonian, and in 2023 will be showcased nationwide on a traveling road show.
