Year of the Woman.
The Year of the Woman
1000Museums has joined our partner museums all over the world in designating 2020 as the Year of the Woman. Each month features a different woman artist, highlighting her work and life. It's our little way of saying "thank you" to the women who paved the way...
2021 Update: As we began to dive in, there were just too many talented women artists to end the campaign after just one year. So we've extended our celebration through March 2021! Please continue to check back in to meet our monthly featured artists.
For Women’s History Month, we featured all-time American favorite Georgia O’Keeffe, whose show Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstract Variations was featured in March at our partner, the Seattle Art Museum!
A painter, mixed media sculptor, performance artist, writer, teacher and lecturer, Faith Ringgold has worked across a wide range of media but is best known for her story quilts. Her work is greatly influenced by African art.
February celebrates both the Year of the Woman and Black History Month. We are so proud to feature African American artist Faith Ringgold.
Our January woman is American Impressionist Mary Cassatt, and in particular, the Mary Cassatt’s Women show at our partner the McNay Museum. View paintings of women by one of the leading women painters of all time!
