"Washington's Art Gallery"

National Museum of Women in the Art, Washington Overview

"The only major museum in the world solely dedicated” to celebrate and honour the works of female artists, the National Museum of Women in the Art is a construction based on the architectural style of classical revival.

Founded in 1981, the museum remains a memoir to artists like Frida Kahlo, Alma Thomas, Lilly Martin Spencer and Lee Krasner while memorialising their legacies in the field of visual, performing and literary arts. It works for the purpose of editing the gender disproportion in the field of arts by enforcing a restored representation of women in art. Hosting a multitude of diverse exhibitions by artists and authors, the museum remains a must-visit for art lovers because of its pallet of permanent collections that reflects liberty and individualism. Equipped with a library and a research centre, this art gallery in Washington DC houses more than 4,500 works from as early as the 16th century.
