Join us for the 2nd Annual International Women’s Day Luncheon, a celebration of recent strides the Museum has made to acquire, exhibit, and recognize the important contributions of women artists. We will also celebrate the impact of women leaders in our community by honoring the 2018 “First Women” and welcoming the 2019 honorees.
