#AskACurator, featuring the “Women at Work” exhibit

Wednesday, September 16, 12:00 pm – REGISTER HERE “What is it like to curate an exhibit?” “How do you choose items for an exhibition?” “What did you learn about women’s history while working on this exhibit?” “How has women’s work changed in the past 150 years?”

Do you have questions like these? If so, you may get them answered! Join us at noon on Wednesday, September 16th via Zoom for a conversation with the curators of the Filson’s exhibition, “Women at Work: Venturing into the Public Sphere.”

This exhibition has not physically opened to the public due to COVID-19, but the exhibition is digitally available to explore! Click the link to view:
