Women in Art

Today is International Women’s Day.

Women have traditionally been under-represented in the study of art, and in the art world in general. In celebration of International Women’s Day, here are some folks to follow to bump up your women’s art knowledge:

Follow #WOMENSART on Twitter, for a steady stream of art by women. P.L. Henderson posts a nice mix of historical and contemporary art, which I particularly enjoy.

The National Museum of Women in the Arts posts a steady stream of art by women on Instagram. Their Can You Name Five Women Artists? campaign seeks to focus on women in the arts, across all social media.

And here are some of the women artists I follow…
