Annual Women’s Art Exhibition Celebrates Feminism

(September 16, 2015) A provocative exhibition that illustrates and celebrates feminism’s past, present, and future, opens Thursday, Oct. 1, at Oakton Community College’s Koehnline Museum of Art, 1600 East Golf Road, Des Plaines. Enjoy a free gala reception with the artists on opening night from 5 to 8 p.m. Feminism Across the Generations runs through Friday, Oct. 23.

This year’s collaboration between Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) and the Koehnline Museum of Art will display more than 70 works by women artists from around the globe that explore how feminists can reach across divisions of time and place.

“Our ‘Generations’ theme has inspired pieces that are both thought-provoking and moving,” says Kathleen Carot, WGS coordinator. “This is a show with wide appeal to both first-time attendees and seasoned art lovers.”

The Koehnline Museum of Art is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The exhibition is funded in part by a generous grant from the Oakton Educational Foundation.
