Fall 2021: Celebration of Women Artists


For the Fall of 2021, Gadsden Arts is delighted to present a series of exhibitions that celebrate the accomplishments of women artists: Four Centuries of Creativity: Women Artists and Senga Nengudi: A.C.Q. - Cross Eyed; A.C.Q. - Cross Ban; A.C.Q. - Cross Waves.

These exhibitions represent four centuries of art created by remarkable women who struggled against gender bias to take their places in history. In addition to learning about women's history, the role of women artists in the art world, and barriers they have faced, these exhibitions allow students to explore identity, emotion, and creative expression. 


Gadsden Arts uses inquiry-based touring techniques that encourage students to examine the meaning behind art, making connections to reading comprehension, and growing skills in critical thinking, creativity, and empathy. Download the Student Learning Guide for sample lessons, as well as information on curriculum correlates. They are aligned to Sunshine State Standards.
