Preserving the Places Where Women Made Art
The places where women artists were inspired to produce their work is as significant as their artwork. Yet too often these sites of creativity are not considered critical when assessing an artist’s work, influences, or impact.

In this event, a panel of geographically, culturally, and thematically diverse places of women’s artistry and creativity will consider both “how” and “why” it is important to recognize and preserve these places where women made art. In doing so we’ll explore a range of approaches for tackling the challenges of preserving the place-based legacy of women artists, examine the manner in which the artists’ stories are presented to the public to bring women artists the recognition and respect they deserve, and how these historic places can continue to inspire education, activism, advocacy, and new artwork in their communities.
