Women to Watch Digital Exhibition Guide

The Women to Watch exhibition series is a unique collaboration between the National Museum of Women Artists (NMWA) and its national and international committees. Each exhibition, held every few years, focuses on a specific medium or theme chosen by NMWA’s curators and features underrepresented, self-identifying women artists from each committee’s respective region.

This seventh installment of Women to Watch features five artists currently living and working within a 150-mile radius of Kansas City who envision a different world through their creative practice. Given the extraordinary events of 2020 including a global health pandemic, intense calls for social reform, and unprecedented political division, artists conjure and express visions of a new world.

This exhibition is juried and curated by Erin Dziedzic, director of curatorial affairs at Kemper Museum and presented in cooperation with the Greater Kansas City Area Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
