A Holistic Appreciation for Artistry

Since its founding in 1987, NMWA has remained a powerhouse for championing and showcasing the accomplishments of women in the arts. Located in Washington D.C., the museum illuminates a long history of female artists who have been traditionally underappreciated, and provides a spotlight for talented contemporary figures to exhibit their work. With a collection of more than 5,000 objects, 10 annual exhibitions, a massive library and research center, and educational initiatives, NMWA is a vital institution representing the extraordinary achievements of female artists.
