Claiming Space: A Century of Visionary Women
July 24 – October 3, 2021
In celebration of the MOWA's 60th anniversary, its founder Melitta Hedwig Suder-Pick, and the state's wealth of women artists, the museum presents Claiming Space: A Century of Visionary Women. From dolls and basketry to abstract painting and sculpture, the exhibition spans artistic media to honor the household names, anonymous artisans, and contemporary collectives who enrich Wisconsin's cultural scene. The exhibition raises timely questions about the representation of women—both on the canvas and in the art world—to promote appreciation of women artists and to inspire the next generation.
