Here’s an interesting (and hard to believe) fact: According to Artnet News, just 11% of all acquisitions at prominent American museums over the past decade were of works by women artists. How can that be? Do your part in advocating for women artists by visiting the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
Here, you’ll find rotating exhibits by both established and emerging women artists and start to understand the obstacles that many women face when bringing their pieces to the masses. Current exhibits include Graciela Iturbide’s Mexico, photography collection Return to Nature, and the late Linda Nochlin’s showcase, The Maverick She. At the National Museum of Women in the Arts, you will see works by women that illustrate their important role in the industry.
