Fresh Talk at the National Museum of Women in the Arts

Join the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) on Sunday, October 18, for their launch of "Women, Arts, and Social Change".

This is NMWA’s new initiative on women and the arts as catalysts for change and it begins with "FRESH TALK: Righting the Balance", which asks if there can be gender parity in the arts.

It is a topic I've been aware of since undergrad at College Park as a dance major. During our senior seminar, it had come up how despite the overwhelming majority of women in dance, the majority of Artistic Directors seemed to be men. That was only the tip of the iceberg and the beginning of a much larger conversation.

Anyway, one can only hope that the question, "Can there be gender parity in the arts?" is a rehtorical one, to which the answer is yes and the next question is what to do achieve it.

The event runs from 3 to 8 pm. Admission to the event is $25 for general admission, or $15 for members, seniors, and students. The price includes museum admission and Sunday supper.

Hope to see you there,
