Women’s History Month: 10 Women Artists You Should Know
Thursday, Mar 4, 2021
6:00pm – 7:00pm
Throughout the history of art, women have been represented most frequently as painted and sculpted subjects — often beautiful, elegant, or even submissive objects — seen through the eyes of male artists. However, women’s roles in art history extend far beyond the male perception of them. Less frequently do you hear about the women who make art.
In celebration of Women’s History Month this March, we’ll explore 10 of the most influential and most interesting female artists — ones every art lover should know — with a thoughtful and interactive discussion about their work and impact on the history of art!
Join Dr. Alex Rich, Executive Director and Chief Curator, Thursday, March 4 at 6 pm on Facebook Live and Zoom as he chats with our panel for the evening, including Dr. Kristen Carter, Assistant Professor of Art History at FSC, Kelly Sturhahn, Associate Professor of Art at Florida Southern College, and Diane Baires, Assistant to the Executive Director at the Polk Museum of Art, as they discuss the underrecognized influence women artists have had throughout art history LIVE from the comfort of your home!
Gather your questions and curiosities for our panel and be ready to celebrate Women’s History Month with us!
