ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Some Day is Now: Women, Art & Social Change
Stitzer Family Gallery
Marking the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in America, Some Day is Now: Women, Art & Social Change presents iconic American female artists whose work advocates for social empowerment and change.
Some Day is Now features over twenty artists including Yoko Ono, Jenny Holzer, and the Guerrilla Girls, who combine language, text, and image to express hope, enact change, raise awareness, and give voice to their beliefs. Installed with historic ephemera from the women’s suffrage movement, and employing similarly direct and impactful visual strategies, their works communicate words of action and empowerment for women as well as people of all genders, races, and ethnicities.
