One hundred years ago, women got the right to vote thanks to the time, energy, and passion of the suffragettes, many of which were artists that we have here at MAG. On this MAGsocial DeTOUR℠, we will celebrate the women in our collection who made MAGnificent muses, painted perfect portraits, and who altered our perceptions of feminism, the art world, and who gave women the rights of agency.
We will reveal the secret lives of females from our past, share fun facts about present-day artists, and celebrate all the wonders women have provided the art world and beyond. We hope you’ll leave feeling proud, inspired, and also unashamed of your unshaven legs (that’s the best part about winter #amirite)!
