A new special exhibition explores the role of women in art and art history at the Cincinnati Art Museum from October 11–April 12, 2020. The Women Breaking Boundaries Cincinnati exhibit highlights artwork from the museum’s permanent collection by female artists from the seventeenth century to today. It will encourage visitors to think critically about gender, inclusion, and diversity.
Women Breaking Boundaries will be on view in the Vance Waddell and Mayerson Galleries (Galleries 124 and 125). Admission is free. You may take photos, but no flash. A free gallery guide highlighting female artists in the collection will be available at the entrance to the museum.
A cross-departmental selection of 38 artworks from Europe, North America, and Asia will be on display. They will range from oil on canvas, metalwork, ceramic, and prints to photography and fashion. When taking pictures, visitors should use #WomenBreakingBoundaries and #PowerofHer when posting to social media. For a full list of programming, please visit the museum’s online calendar.

About Women Breaking Boundaries
Members of WAMA were strong female activists for the arts, founding our institution as well as others throughout the city, and funding early acquisitions by female artists. Furthermore, as the nation is about to celebrate 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage, Women Breaking Boundaries reminds us to reflect on this history.
Women Breaking Boundaries is conceived of as the museum’s main contribution and focal point of a larger project, Power of Her. In addition, it is a city-wide initiative of Cincinnati arts organizations to mark 100 years since the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment. Also, it includes community programs, festivities, and events through various organizations. These organizations include Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, Cincinnati Ballet.
