Throughout the history of Western art, prominent women artists have been singled out as exceptions, their “uniqueness” undermining their artistic achievements. In this session we will explore works by Modern women artists, who with outstanding originality nurtured, expanded, and challenged a male-dominated field.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
