2008 Women's History Month
Women’s Art: Women’s Vision
(Picture downloaded from http://www.nwhp.org/whm/index.php 2/25/08)
Throughout U.S. history, women of every race and class have made contributions that have helped to shape and strengthen the country. In 1987, Congress declared the month of March Women’s History Month to recognize women's contributions and to promote the teaching of women's history.
This year’s theme Women’s Art: Women’s Vision provides a special opportunity to discover and celebrate women’s visual arts in a variety of forms and mediums that help expand women's perceptions of themselves and each other. It is also to honor the originality, beauty, imagination, and multiple dimensions of women’s lives.
To celebrate Women's History Month this year, we have compiled a bibliography consisting of books, journal articles, websites and other information resources to accompany the exhibit on the first floor of McCain Library featuring women artists and their contributions to art.
