Women’s History Month
Celebrate Women’s History Month with us!
The museum’s mission year-round is to address gender imbalance in the art world, but every March—Women’s History Month—NMWA has an opportunity to catch the attention of a wider audience to celebrate women artists. Check out what’s going on this year!
What’s On for Women’s History Month 2018
NMWA’s popular social media campaign to highlight women in the arts is back for a third year, and we’re placing a special emphasis on sharing the stories of women artists of color. Take the challenge by following/posting about #5WomenArtists on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, and tag us @WomenInTheArts.
