Women in Art History
Three Thursdays, March 21 - April 4
6 - 7:30 PM
During Women's History Month, learn about the impact women have had on the visual arts through guided viewing and discussion of works by female artists represented in the permanent collection. Is there a "female" perspective, subject, or style? Explore these notions by examining the advantages and disadvantages female artists experienced, some of their artistic responses to historic events, and the different creative approaches they took.
