The Women's Caucus for Art, founded in 1972, is a national organization
unique in its multidisciplinary, multicultural membership of artists,
art historians, students and educators, gallery and museum professionals,
and others involved in the visual arts. We have focused attention
on the enormous contributions of women and people of color throughout
the history of art.
Our emphasis is on women working in the visual arts professions
today. We have established a national network through research,
exhibitions, conferences and honor awards for achievement. From
the emergence of the women's art movement in the early 1970's, the
Women's Caucus for Art has championed the contributions of women
in the arts professions. Our archives, housed at Rutgers University,
document and preserve our role in that legacy.
