Fall into Fall 2016 - Part 3: Women in the Arts, Hurrah!

Carmen Herrera (b. 1915), Siete, 1949, acrylic on canvas,
Paul and Trudy Cejas Collection

Right now- ending this weekend - most of the major museums in New York (and Greenwich, CT) are featuring women artists as the main exhibition in their galleries.  How about that, feminists!  Take note - and savor the strides that your hard work has accomplished.  This is only the beginning.  Today we are paying attention to this historic moment.  Tomorrow, the equality of women in the workplace, whether in the arts or in the auto industry, will be completely normal and unremarkable.  We are almost there.  Yes, we can! 

So here's the evidence:
Alma Thomas, Studio Museum of Harlem, through October 30th.
Cornelia Parker, Metropolitan Museum of Art, through October 31st. 
Diane Arbus, Metropolitan Breuer, through November 27th.
