Virtual Exhibition Walkthrough: Celebrating Art by Women
February 28 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join assistant curator/academic liaison Amanda Douberley for a closer look at the exhibition, Encounters with the Collection: Celebrating Art by Women. The exhibition is the second in a series of permanent collection gallery rotations that bring fresh perspectives to the interpretation of the Benton’s holdings. This installation is mounted in support of two 50th anniversary celebrations at UConn: that of the Women’s Center and the Puerto Rican/Latin American Cultural Center. The exhibition features work in a variety of media such as paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, posters, ceramics, textiles, and mixed media collages. Spanning the 17th century to the present, the show highlights the work of more than 45 women-identified artists, designers, and collectives.
Co-sponsored by the UConn Women’s Center.
