Feminizing Permanence


Feb 12, 2020 to Dec 13, 2020

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Feminizing Permanence features forty historical and contemporary artworks by forty women artists from the Saint Mary’s College Museum of Art’s permanent collection. The recontextualized works explore a wide range of themes while collectively speaking to the underrepresentation of women artists in the permanent collections of museums across the country. The exhibition recognizes the contributions of women in the arts and their shared journey toward parity. Feminizing Permanence is a collaboration with Saint Mary's College of California, Department of Art course Issues in Modern Art.
