Subject: Resolution Recognizing Violet Oakley's 145th Birthday
I will, in the near future, be introducing a resolution recognizing Violet Oakley's 145th birthday.

Violet Oakley was born on June 10, 1874, in Jersey City, New Jersey, though she lived the majority of her life in Philadelphia.

In 1902 Violet Oakley was the first woman artist to receive a large commission for adorning a capitol building in the United States. Though it was not known at the time, Oakley would become the principal artist for the largest amount of murals in the Pennsylvania Capitol.

Please join me in celebrating the exceptional life and accomplishments of Violet Oakley.
