with Ann Bittl discussing Women in the arts, Modern to Post Modern and Sharon Beynon discussing modernism and literature.
Although women artists during the modern period until the latter half of the 20th century, entered the mainstream in the visual arts at a greater number than before; they were still the minority in most museums, institutions, and the art world.
The exhibition not only examines these artists as to creative endeavors, but also the means by which they altered society’s perception of the very nature and practice of art itself.
