This mosiac-like abstract painting of hydrangeas by Alma Thomas reveals her keen powers of observation and interest in natural phenomena. Thomas was the first female graduate of Howard University’s art department in 1924 and went on to teach art in a Washington DC junior high school for the next thirty-six years.

If you ask someone to name five artists, they will likely name prominent male artists, but how many people can list five women artists? Throughout March’s Women’s History Month, we will be joining institutions around the world to answer this very question posed by the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NWMA). We will be featuring a woman artist every day this month, and highlighting artists in our current exhibition Half the Picture: A Feminist Look at the Collection which explores a wide range of art-making, focusing on enduring political subjects—encompassing gender, race, and class—that remain relevant today. The show will be on view until March 31, 2019.

Together we hope to draw attention to the gender and race imbalance in the art world, inspire conversation and awareness, and hopefully add a few more women to everyone’s lists.

The feminist Guerrilla Girls collective has long been at the front lines of conversations about oppression and exclusion, fearlessly and hilariously tackling sexism and racism in the arts since their founding in 1985. Twelve of their iconic posters—originally designed to be wheat-pasted in highly visible areas of New York frequented by the art world—are currently on view in Half the Picture: A Feminist Look at the Collection.
