The 2106 WCA Conference in Washington, DC culminated with a rousing reception at our exhibition Impact! on the entire second floor of the American University Museum in the Katzen Arts Center. The legacy of WCA and of the honor awards for Lifetime Achievement were understood and appreciated by those who saw the examples of powerful work by over thirty artists selected by Curator Leslie King-Hammond and of examples of influential publications by art historians and curators, all awardees. Scrolling slides recognizing all 194 women honored since the first awards were presented at the White House in 1979 represented the full range and significance of the honor awards.
The exhibition was co-organized by former WCA board members Jaimianne Amicucci and Barbara Wolaninwith the support of the WCA Board, the American University Museum, and the lenders and donors.
The catalog of the exhibition is now available for purchase at https://www.createspace.com/6039136 for $16 including shipping.
