A Museum of Their Own

In the title A Museum of Their Own: National Museum of Women in the Arts, museum founder Whilhelmina Cole Holladay, writes a magnificent memoir of her curatorial work for the NMWA. In this book there are many fine prints of works at the museum. From this collection we have added 22 images of the works of women artists from around the world. These are available to the SCAD community with your MySCAD log-in.
