Within the Betty Boyd Dettre Library and Research Center, special exhibitions illustrate the accomplishments and history of women in the arts through the display of primary source materials from the library's collection.
Many women artists in the first half of the twentieth century found work illustrating books. Working for large or niche publishing houses, creating cartoons or caricatures, or writing and illustrating their own books, these women managed careers as illustrators while also working for recognition as painters and printmakers. Featuring books and archival documentation, the exhibition includes artists such as Edna Reindel, Vanessa Bell, and Lo s Mailou Jones.
