This exhibition presents more than 50 artists from the late-19th century through today. Working in representational and abstract syles, the artists in You Go Girl! express a wide range of concerns that often mirror those of their male colleagues, while sometimes challenging traditional artistic boundaries and male authority. Featured artists include Berenice Abbott, Elaine de Kooning, Dorothy Dehner, Audrey Flack, Jane Hammond, Mary Nimmo Moran, Georgia O’Keeffe, Betty Parsons, Miriam Schapiro, Esphyr Slobodkina, Emma Stebbins, and Jane Wilson, among others. You Go Girl! closes a year of exhibitions drawn exclusively from the Museum's Permanent Collection, in celebration of our 95th anniversary.

You Go Girl! is sponsored in part by Frank Lourenso & Gary Stevens - Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, and by The John Hahn Foundation.

Also on view is Elizabeth Strong-Cuevas's "Jazz," Lightning 1, which the artist recently donated to the Museum.  The bronze and stainless steel sculpture depicts one of the artist's "double profile" heads, which convey the unity of contradictory forces in the universe with allusions to our primitive past and technological future.

William Merritt Chase, Thomas Eakins, George Grosz, John Rogers, Emma Stebbins, and John Sloan are among the featured artists.
