Event description: 

As part of the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Women at Yale, this exhibition highlights works by women who have graduated from the School of Art, Yale’s first coeducational school. The education of women has been a fundamental part of the School’s mission since its foundation. The initial bequest that made the School possible was a donation of Augustus and Caroline Street specifically for “a school for practical instruction, open to both sexes, for such as propose to follow art as a profession.” Drawn from the Arts Library Special Collections, these works, including artists books, prints, and photo books, span over the last 55 years and offer a glimpse into the exceptional careers of 27 women artists counted amongst Yale University alumni.
Curated by Allison Comrie, 2019-20 Kress Fellow in Art Librarianship, and Mar González Palacios, Associate Director, Arts Library Special Collections
