  • Time: 7–8pm

The contribution and work of female artists, like Doris Lee, have historically been overlooked due to systems of misogyny, sexism, and inequality in American society. This in-depth discussion between Pamela Cooper, Artist and Educator, Christiane Dolores, cross-disciplinary Artist and current Artist in Residence at the Museum, Amber McAlister, PhD, Assistant Professor of History of Art & Architecture, University of Pittsburgh, Greensburg, and Maureen Vissat, Assistant Professor of Art History, Seton Hill University examines the history and experiences of American women in the arts.

Please note that the Simple Pleasures: The Art of Doris Lee exhibition will be open for special late viewing hours from 5-7pm this evening for you to experience the exhibition prior to the program. Additionally, the Museum Shop and Cafe Marchand will be open from 5-7pm.
