Celebrate Female Creatives at “Power in My Hand: Women Poets, Women Artists, and Social Change”
The bonds between female artists and activists—who are sometimes one and the same—cannot be broken by time, distance, or even differences in ideology. Power in My Hand: Women Poets, Women Artists, and Social Change makes this truth very clear, a special exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
Now through August 30th, the museum will play host to a visiting collection of art, poetry, and artists’ books crafted exclusively by female artists. Many of them were made in homage to other women in the arts, like Muriel Rukeyser’s poem about German artist Kathe Kollwitz and Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party, a work of installation art dedicated to Emily Dickinson. The museum is open daily with longer hours Monday through Saturday, so don’t miss your chance to experience this female-driven exhibit. Admission starts at $8.
