Powerful Women of Newfields
In celebration of Women’s History Month in March, we invite you to be inspired by the powerful women of Newfields. Learn the stories of women who defied gender stereotypes, shattered glass ceilings, broke out of cultural norms, and fought sexism to become artists, influencers, collectors, and patrons of Newfields. Each tour will focus on female artists, famous women portrayed in art works, and women who were patrons and collectors of important objects in the permanent collection. These barrier breakers will have you talking, thinking, and inspired.
