We visited the National Museum Of Women In the Arts on Monday, April 24, 2017.
I was just was totally drawn into the art, the history of women in the arts, the beauty of the
magnificent building........the "feel" ....... the "essence".....
me - little Shirley Ann Wood - from a small little historical town in NE Ohio.
I am still in awe................
I am going back ~
The museum is now celebrating it's 30th anniversary; and remains the only major museum in
the world solely dedicated to celebrating the creative contributions of women
artists. The "NMWA champions women through the arts by collecting, exhibiting,
and creating programs that advocate for equity and shine a light on excellence."
One of the photos in this slideshow is of the grand hall (a portion of it, anyway) where
we had tea and lunch.
The building was constructed in 1907-08, the Renaissance Revival structure
originally served as a Masonic temple. In 1983, the museum purchased the building and,
after extensive renovations, opened to the public on April 7, l987 as the National
Museum Of Women In The Arts.
The Museum's collections, which highlights connections between historical
and contemporary works of art. The galleries delve into topics explored by
women artists through time and around the world.
