Urgent Museum Notice


Twelve vertical columns, each a different color, of repeating flower, pinwheel, and starburst shapes on a white background.
As the first major museum devoted to the creative work of women, NMWA was founded on principles of inclusion and access. These values are ingrained throughout our work.
A black-and-white image of a light-skinned woman is centered atop a grey-and-white vertically striped background. She wears pearls and holds a pair of binoculars to her eyes while smiling widely. Superimposed over the image are four red horizontal bands with the phrase 'We will no longer be seen and not heard' in white block letters.
