Rebels with a Cause at Polk Museum of Art

Exhibition: Rebels with a Cause

Apr 9, 2016 - Jul 3, 2016
10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Rebels With a Cause presents outstanding selections of painting, drawings and sculptures from The Huntsville Museum of Art’s recently acquired Sellars Collection of Art by American Women at Lakeland's Polk Museum of Art. This landmark holding celebrates the achievements of more than 250 talented female artists active between the mid-19th and mid-20th centuries. Many rebelled against the convention of their day by exhibiting alongside their male counterparts, receiving awards, and pioneering the way for those who would follow. Today, art historians are rediscovering their accomplishments and establishing their rightful place in the expanding narrative of American history.

An exhibition reception to introduce the art exhibit will be held on April 7.

A free, curator tour of the Rebels with a Cause Exhibit by Curator Adam Justice will take place on April 22.
