Please join us on March 27 from 5 to 7 PM
for the opening reception of The Female Gaze: The Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women.
The Female Gaze: The Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women was organized by the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
The show will run from March 28 through May 4, 2014.
This exhibition presents 77 self-portraits and works of art exploring community and identity from the Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women. Alter, an artist herself, donated her collection of nearly 500 works of art by American women to one of the nation's most distinguished art institutions, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
From Judy Chicago to Kiki Smith, Alice Neel to Faith Ringgold, Hung Liu to Elizabeth Catlett and Alison Saar, the exhibition presents the voices of artists whose work has helped define America's sense of itself.
