WOMEN ARTISTS IN THE AGE OF IMPRESSIONISM
This groundbreaking exhibition broadly surveys a key chapter in art history in which an international group of female artists overcame gender-based restrictions to make remarkable creative strides. This exhibition presents renowned artists such as Berthe Morisot (French), Mary Cassatt (American), and Rosa Bonheur (French) alongside lesser-known yet equally important peers including Anna Ancher (Danish), Lilla Cabot Perry (American), and Paula Modersohn-Becker (German).

Artist Andy Goldsworthy has spent a better part of his life incorporating the natural resources and environments he inhabits to create site-specific works that are in concert with nature. For example, he forms his image in a landscape by stretching across a sidewalk as rain begins to fall, leaving a dry silhouette when he steps up.
