Power in My Hand: Celebrating Women's Suffrage
In honor of the centennial of Women’s Suffrage, "Power in My Hand" will feature some 25 works by women artists drawn from the permanent collection. The title of the exhibition is borrowed from American poet Emily Dickinson, who–well over a century ago–took up her powerful pen and “went against the World” in pursuit of her writing. Her words still resonate with meaning today and conjure the indomitable spirit of suffragettes who fought for the right to vote, as well as artists who challenged the male-dominated art world throughout much of the 20th century. Artists featured include Diana Al-Hadid, Rina Banerjee, Mary Lee Bendolph, Lee Bontecou, Minna Citron, Sonia Gechtoff, Hung Liu, Elizabeth Quinlan, Faith Ringgold, Anne Ryan, Alison Saar and Kay WalkingStick.
