Making Their Mark: Illinois Women Artists, 1940-1960
This exhibition, curated by Channey Lyons with assistance from the Peoria Riverfront Museum, explores a period in Illinois art history through artworks that are often overlooked. These works, created by women artists during the 1940s and 1950s are highly personal, subjective, and occasionally visionary or politically charged in ways that both resonate with the familiar currents of Chicago modernism and offer new dimensions to that story. Making Their Mark features sixty paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by forty artists.
