Women Take the Floor

November 5–December 12, 2019

Explore the past 100 years of art through the lens of under-recognized and underrepresented women artists. Inspired by the reinstallation of Level 3 of the Art of American Wing, "Women Take the Floor" advocates for diversity, inclusion, and gender equity in museums, the art world, and beyond. Hear the stories behind the women from the turn of the century to today.

Take the full five-session course or choose the lectures that interest you most.
