Women’s Caucus for Art

Recently became a member of WCA (Women’s Caucus for Art), in search for an organization that has a long history of supporting women artists.

From the site:

“The Women’s Caucus for Art, founded in 1972 in connection with the College Art Association (CAA), is a national member organization unique in its multi-disciplinary, multicultural membership of artists, art historians, students /educators, and museum professionals.”

The mission:

“The mission of the Women’s Caucus for Art is to create community through art, education, and social activism.  We are committed to: recognizing the contributions of women in the arts, providing women with leadership opportunities and professional development, expanding networking and exhibition opportunities for women and supporting local, national, and global art activism and advocating for equity in the arts for all.”
