Women Breaking Boundaries: March 22, 2020


This exhibition presents artworks from across the museum’s permanent collection, most of which were created by self-identified female artists from the seventeenth century to today. By pairing historic and contemporary works of art in many mediums, the exhibition explores how these artists challenged the norm in an art world historically dominated by men.

Art from across Europe, North America and Asia in a range of mediums will be featured together, including oil on canvas, metalwork, ceramic, prints, photography, and fashion. Prominent artists include Georgia O’Keeffe, Lorna Simpson, Kara Walker, Mary Cassatt, Julia Margaret Cameron, Elizabeth Catlett, and Chiyo Mitsuhisa.

The economics of art will likewise be discussed as it relates to the financial health of these women artists. Educators will learn about the resources available through the Economics Center.
