Event Description

Please Note: Tickets are required for admission to the lecture. Admission to the lecture includes entrance to the Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon.

Explore and enjoy the aesthetic achievements of American women artists before 1920, the year of women’s suffrage, in a variety of media with curator Erica Hirshler of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Her illustrated talk will examine their accomplishments within the context of social history and the accessibility of an artistic education. As painter Cecilia Beaux wrote in 1915, she looked forward to the day “when the term ‘Women in Art’ will be as strange sounding a topic as the title ‘Men in Art’ would be now.”

Erica Hirshler, Croll Senior Curator of American Paintings, Art of the Americas
