Closes May 29: Art in Focus gallery highlighting women artists from the museum's permanent collection
May 10, 2021
The Art in Focus gallery highlights artwork from the museum's permanent collection. As ASU Art Museum, along with many museums across the country, actively works to build a more diverse collection that tells a representative history of art, they make it a priority to collect and exhibit artists who have been marginalized. A recent study of the artists represented in the collections of eighteen major American art museums found that only 12.6% are women.
This installation features works on paper, ceramics, baskets and wood objects made by a range of influential women artists, including Betye Saar, Faith Ringgold, Sandra Ramos, Maria Martinez, Rose Cabat and Louise Nevelson.
To ensure the well-being of all our visitors and staff, we ask that you please comply with our new ASU and city guidelines to keep all of us safe. Reserve your free timed-entry tickets and learn more about the museum's new guidelines before visiting.
