On the heels of the #MeToo movement and in light of growing awareness of gender inequality in many contexts, including art museums, In the Company of Women: Women Artists from the Collection will feature approximately 50 works in Phoenix Art Museum’s collection created exclusively by women. This exhibition invites visitors to see these iconic works in a new light, simultaneously questioning and transforming our perspective on what, and why, we consider great art.
This exhibition is offered to the general public for free during voluntary donation, free-access hours from 3–9 pm each Wednesday, from 6–10 pm on the First Friday of each month, and the second weekend of each month from 10am–5pm on Saturday and noon–5 pm on Sunday.
