Smithsonian Speaker Series – Free!

The Smithsonian launched the American Women’s History Initiative — Because Of Her Story — in 2018. The initiative is one of the country’s most ambitious undertakings to research, collect, document, display, and share the compelling story of women. It is inclusive, highlighting the stories of those who identify as women and those who were designated female but self-identify differently.

As part of Women’s History Month, SMoA, the only Smithsonian affiliate art museum in Ohio, is proud to provide access to these renowned Smithsonian resources and experts.

Mar 31 at 5pm – Women Artists Respond to Place
