National Museum of Women in the Arts Announces New Portal with Virtual Resources, Featuring Art by Women

Apr 06 2020

WASHINGTON—The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) announces NMWA @ Home, a dynamic new resource for virtual activities and resources while the museum is temporarily closed due to the Covid-19 outbreak. NMWA @ Home is a portal to explore the work of great women artists with links to online exhibitions, collections, artist profiles, talks and news as well as art podcast and video recommendations.

“We need connection and community now more than ever, and the arts can provide that bridge,” said NMWA Director Susan Fisher Sterling. “Art offers powerful ways for us to visualize our shared humanity, and museums have often served as places of refuge and solace. It is truly unprecedented that when we need it most, we are unable to physically come together to experience all that great art has to offer. I am thankful for the capacity to share the museum digitally, and invite everyone to join us online.”
