According to The National Museum for Women in the Arts, in Washington D.C.:
● 51% of today’s visual artists are women
● Only 25% of the solo exhibitions at major museums feature women artists.
● Only 5% of the art currently on permanent display in American museums is by women artists
Since its inception in 1990, American Women Artists has worked diligently to bring women artists to the attention of the art world through museum exhibitions and juried and member shows in leading galleries around the country, one festival for women in the arts with simultaneous exhibits and events in 40 galleries in Santa Fe, New Mexico and an international exchange and exhibit with Sorrento, Italy.
As a partner with American Women Artists, you are joining a network of donors as diverse as the continent we serve yet who share two common bonds – a giving spirit and the desire to increase the number of professional and educational opportunities for women in the visual fine arts… opportunities that lead to greater inclusion.
AWA serves women artists throughout the United States along with a growing contingent of artists from Canada. AWA is an independent, tax-exempt nonprofit organization that celebrated its inaugural exhibit in 1990 at the Tucson Museum of Art and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in the state of New Mexico in 1998.
Your donation dollars will be put to work directly serving women artists in the form of scholarships and education, mounting exhibitions in nationally-recognized museums and strengthening our organization for years to come.
Consider giving at any level to support our mission to inspire, celebrate and encourage women in the visual fine arts.
