The Owensboro Museum of Fine Art will reopen June 14 with the exhibition CELEBRATE WOMEN commemorating the 100th anniversary of the signing of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which gave women the right to vote.
Closed for 12 weeks due of the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum will resume its 2020 exhibition season with a showcase of more than 100 works of art by women artists across Kentucky. A brochure documenting the celebration will be published by the museum.
The exhibition, sponsored by U.S. Bank, will feature a community celebration planned for July 18 that will include a reception for the artists complemented by special performing arts events presented by Owensboro women.
A wide variety of media is represented in the exhibition and includes works by both academically trained and naïve artists.
Visitors to the exhibition will be asked to observe the current safety procedures mandated by the COVID-19 crisis including social distancing, use of a mask and submitting to temperature checks.
CELEBRATE WOMEN will remain on display through Aug. 16 and may be viewed during regular museum hours. Admission to the museum is free, although voluntary donations are suggested of $3 for adults and $2 for children under 12.
