Janice Lowry's Diary, 1958

Janice Lowry (1946-2009) was an American artist based in Arizona and California. Lowry was known from her paintings, collages, and assemblages in addition to her unique visual journals. She was a very dedicated diarist. From age 11 until the last years of her life (with an exception of a decade) Lowry kept diaries, notebooks, journals, and art journals. In her diaries kept from ages 12 through 16, Lowry writes about her family, friends, parties, boys, and her hobbies, which included sewing, reading, and going to the movies. Lowry grew up in Phoenix, Arizona with her four siblings and mother, who married seven times, adding tumult to their family's life. Lowry's transition from child to young woman is evident in the maturation of her writing style and choices of topic. The journals provide insight into the artist's personal experiences growing up as well as general details about what life was like for a girl in the Southwest in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Help transcribe her diary as part of the Smithsonian's #BecauseOfHerStory campaign to share and celebrate the diverse stories of American girlhood. Coordination of this and other girlhood history projects in the Transcription Center (including selection, digitization, cataloging, outreach, and educational resources) was funded by the Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative.
