Camden FireWorks Current Exhibition: "Women's Work” Makes Bold Statements, Yields Nuanced Thoughts

By Discover Jersey Arts, Shen Shellenberger, January 25, 2023

A 2019 Public Library of Science survey of eighteen prominent American museums revealed that over 80% of represented artists are male. This is not new. Throughout history, work by women artists has been undervalued. But, as Susan Fisher Sterling, the Alice West Director of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, told NEA Arts, there are things that people can do to help drive change. One of her suggestions is this: "Support women artists and the institutions exhibiting their work. Privilege those places that are working towards achieving gender equality." 

You can do your part by visiting Camden FireWorks and seeing the current exhibition, “Women's Work: Exploring Domestic Arts Through Gender," and spreading the word about this dynamic and thought-provoking show.
