10:00 am - 5:00 pm    "Female + Form" art exhibit

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

This selection of artwork from the permanent collection embraces a diverse range of forms and showcases work by important women artists. Rather than representing a certain artistic style or focusing on specific subjects depicted by women, this exhibition features a variety of styles and subjects. Included are representations of the female form, critiques of the objectification of the female body, and experiments with total abstraction. Highlights include posters by the Guerilla Girls, an installation piece by Ilene Segalove, photography from the second wave of feminism and minimalist abstraction.
