Ninth Street Women is the impassioned, exhilarating chronicle of five women who dared to enter the male-dominated world of twentieth-century abstract painting – not as muses but as artists. These five women changed American art and society, tearing up the prevailing social code and replacing it with a doctrine of liberation. This is the remarkable and inspiring story of the power of art and artists in shaping not just postwar America but the future.

RSVP deadline is November 1st, 11:59 pm EST. Zoom information for the online meeting will be sent to attendees on November 3rd.
