February 2012 Picks from CAA’s Committee on Women in the Arts

posted by Christopher Howard — Feb 13, 2012

Each month, CAA’s Committee on Women in the Arts produces a curated list, called CWA Picks, of recommended exhibitions and events related to feminist art and scholarship in North America and around the world.

The CWA Picks for February 2012 include four solo shows of women artists at museums and galleries across the United States. The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, California, presents Alina Szapocznikow: Sculpture Undone, 1955–1972, and the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, will exhibit the work of Maya Lin. Kathryn Spence: Dirty and Clean is on view at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut, and the Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington has organized a survey of work by the celebrated children’s book author and illustrator, Katharine Pyle (1863–1938).

Check the archive of CWA Picks at the bottom of the page, as several museum and gallery shows listed in previous months may still be on view or touring.
