Women's History Month

This month, we're sharing stories for Women's History Month, exploring the connections between history and art.

Photographer, historian, and curator Deb Willis’s breakthrough exhibition, Posing Beauty in African American Culture, has been travelling for over 10 years. It’s based on her book featuring snapshots, documentary photographs, and works by artists, all exploring beauty in Black culture.
