Exhibit calls attention to glass ceiling in art world

An exhibit at the LaVerne Krause Gallery in Lawrence Hall held March 10-14 showcased work by five Arts and Administration Program graduate students who cofounded The Feminist Museum, a website committed to helping break the glass ceiling for women in the art world. Their exhibit Object/Subject: Femininity in Contemporary Culture prompted lively discussion about feminism and the male-dominated art world (51 percent of visual artists are women yet only 5 percent of art on display in U.S. museums is by women). Stories in Eugene Weekly, The Daily Emerald, and Campus Reform covered the event.
