For the Record: Celebrating Art by Women

Norton Museum of Art / Palm Beach / Art

For much of the 20th century, women’s contributions to art were ignored or swept to the corner. Often involved with male artists, they were deemed muses and their creativity went unnoticed. Or they worked in secrecy, skirting disapproval from a hidebound culture. Or they launched themselves into the arena only to get faint praise. To honor such women, 50 objects from Norton Museum’s collection—paintings, sculptures, works on paper, photography, and video—explore the breadth of women’s contributions to the visual arts from Modernism to today. Artists on the roster include Emma Amos, Agnes Martin, Suzanne Valadon, Alison Saar, and Viola Frey. —E.C.
