In 2017, AWA launched 25 in 25, a bold initiative to secure 25 museum exhibitions for our women artist members, over the next 25 years.

We launched this effort because work by women artists comprises only 3-5% of the permanent holdings of art museums, in America and worldwide. AWA is the only artists’ organization determined to roll up its sleeves and make a difference in this inequity!

The fact that I have a painting in the permanent collection of the Booth Western Art Museum is a direct result of my participation in the AWA show there.”
