While you jam to Lizzo's empowering hot new tune "Like a Girl," I invite you to explore this collection of women centered art- including pieces of, by, and for women.   I hope you will use this collection to acquaint yourself with the female contribution to the art scene and the contemporary woman.  In this collection you will find a collage of art, tasteful articles, and videos articulating the influence of women on the Smithsonian collection.  No matter what your interests- there is something here for everyone.  Explore this collection and get excited for the Smithsonian at 8 Garden Party featuring women in art internationally.
