Instituting Women Representation at SMC

Date & Time:
Friday, March 5, 2021 - 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

In 2018 a study revealed only 11 percent of works in the nation’s major museum collections are works by women artists. Acknowledging this gender inequity, join the Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art (SMCMoA) in a discussion that addresses how museums can shift and reframe their operational and professional practices to enhance the voice and representation of women in the arts. With an emphasis on women as art collectors, artists in art history, writers and archivists, and contemporary artmakers, this discussion looks at how a small college art museum has examined its institutional history, collection practices, and exhibition curations to generate a richer, more inclusive history.
