Trailblazers: Groundbreaking Women in the Arts
National Museum of Women in the Arts
January 13, 10:30 am-11:30 am
Although women form the majority of the population, they have historically been underrepresented in the arts. Discover the contributions over time of important women artists of different nationalities with this highlights tour of the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA).
Located in Washington, DC, NMWA is the first museum in the world solely dedicated to championing women through the arts. Since opening in 1987, it has acquired a collection of more than 5,500 works by more than 1,000 artists, ranging from the 16th century to today. During an interactive presentation, we’ll learn about trailblazing women who pushed back on the limited roles society accorded them—becoming artists, activists, and innovators. We’ll see the work of forgotten female artists from the past, as well as that of today’s stars and women to watch. The museum’s collection includes works by Frida Kahlo, Mary Cassatt, Alma Woodsey Thomas, Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, and Amy Sherald.
