About the exhibition:
The exhibition – the first exhibition in the museum’s history to have been fully developed and curated by an undergraduate student – features more than 50 contemporary artworks by female artists across a variety of media. Among the artists included in the exhibition are photographers Laurie Simmons and Donna Ferrato, painter Miriam Shapiro, and painters and sculptors Linda Stein and Ruby Sky Stiler. The majority of artworks in the exhibition will come from the museum’s collection, and will include many recent acquisitions, with select loans coming from the Westport Public Art Collection (WestPAC) and private collections.
