Following the centennial of the 19th Amendment, celebrated in 2020, this exhibition presents selected highlights of works of the nearly 100 female artists in the Museum’s Permanent Collection, including Mary Cassatt, Judy Chicago, Terry Haass, Terry Parmelee, Grace Hartigan, Kiki Smith, Anne Truitt, Renee Stout, and others. The Museum is proud that works by female artists make up nearly a quarter of its Permanent Collection, which is twice the national average for U.S. museums.
The works in the exhibition cover a wide range of movements and interests from mid-20th century to our present moment, including minimalism, abstraction, and contemporary art. The exhibition demonstrates the diverse accomplishments of female artists in the Museum’s Permanent Collection and raises important questions about gender equality and representation in the art world.
