This panel surveys the advancement of women artists within the field of sculpture since the mid-20th century. Unlocking new opportunities in artistic endeavors has not been without difficulty in the face of entrenched art world attitudes. The distinguished artists on the panel will discuss the trajectories and achievements of their careers in the context of professional and aesthetic dimensions of the art world.
Moderated by Joan Marter, Distinguished Professor of Art History at Rutgers University, the panel will include artists and National Academicians Lin Emery, Nancy Grossman, Pat Lasch, and Rhoda Sherbell. This program is a collaborative effort with the International Sculpture Center.
