Curated by Kirk Ambrose, Professor of Art History, Chair of the Department of Art and Art History; and Stephen V. Martonis of the CU Art Museum.

Flatirons, 1983, by Ann E. Jones, Collection Kirkland Museum

Kirkland Museum is loaning 9 works to the exhibition.

This exhibition celebrates the little-studied artistic contributions of women, who were the drivers of cultural life in the first half of the 20th century within Colorado, and provides an important case study into the ways in which women contributed to the development of American art. Artists include: Eve Drewlowe, Gwen Meux, Muriel Sibell Wolle and Virginia True, among others.
