The Hunter Museum is kicking off Through Her Eyes: A Year of Female Artists (YOFA)! Often underrepresented in the art world, women are taking center stage at the Hunter in 2020, through special exhibitions, site specific installations, and events.

Easily identify works by female artists, by finding this label next to art in the permanent collection. 

For the Hunter, this year-long initiative is the latest in an ongoing commitment to nurture a broad collection of American art by, among other things, increasing the number of works by women in the museum’s permanent collection.

Since 2005, when the Hunter’s new building opened and ushered the museum into the 21st century with an updated look and expanded gallery space, the museum has organized 18 solo exhibitions of women artists, three of which have traveled to other institutions around the country. In the last year, the Hunter has acquired nine works by female artists, including the first major commission for the museum lobby by Brooklyn artist Alyson Shotz. And this year, the museum will put on view in its permanent collection galleries most of the works by female artists that it owns.

We invite you to make plans to visit – and bring friends and family – to see all the amazing artwork created by women both past and present. Come celebrate with us!
