Opening Events!

Sorry we’ve been posting less than usual—we’ve been swamped getting everything ready for the opening weekend. We’ve got a lot to mention!

We’ve got a ton of events for the opening weekend. Everything from Members Previews, ribbon cuttings, book signings, and talks and performances. Check out the full schedule here.

In addition, we are thrilled to announce that in conjunction with the exhibition Global Feminisms, feminist artists from more than fifty countries are discussing or performing their works. Talks and performances take place every half-hour in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art—the full schedule can be found here.

Judy Chicago will be joining us to sign books on Thursday, March 22, from 2 to 3 p.m., during special preview hours. (Members will be admitted from 12 to 5 p.m.) She will also sign books from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m., during the opening celebration.
