Check out what all the buzz is about!
The museum is brimming with artwork by and about women who thrived as professionals and influencers despite social norms that denounced such public, unfeminine behavior. Discover a diverse cast of fierce women who refused to let men define their place; thumbed their noses at the limited roles society accorded them; and blazed a trail as artists, activists, and innovators proving that fierce gets the job done.
Led by a passionate NMWA educator, this unconventional, edgy, and fast-paced tour is fun, fearless, and free.
Not required, but space is limited. First come, first served; sign up at the Information Desk upon arrival. Tour departs from the Great Hall.
