Celebrate the debut of the Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women in an exhibition featuring over 150 works from this unprecedented gift to PAFA. Discover how modern and contemporary women artists have depicted themselves and their communities, reflected on civil rights and politics, and depicted nature's awesome and fragile delights. View major works by Edna Andrade, Louise Bourgeois, Viola Frey, Alice Neel, Christina Ramberg, Faith Ringgold, Miriam Schapiro, Kara Walker, and many others.
