Latitude: The Washington Women's Arts Center 1975-1987 June 16-August 12, 2018

Members of the Washington Women's Arts Center outside its location at 1821 Q Street NW.

The Washington Women’s Arts Center (WWAC), headquartered at 1821 Q Street NW, was created in 1975 as a non-profit organization that provided professional support and opportunities for women in the arts. Throughout its history, the WWAC would also sponsor speakers, produce literary and visual arts journals, and collaborate with other organizations to raise the profile of women artists in the Washington D.C. area and around the country.

During the summer of 2018, the AU Museum will host an exhibition featuring the art of former WWAC members and exhibitors. Curated by Francoise Yohalem, it will showcase 90+ works produced between the years 1975-1987, some of which are iconic of that time. The show brings back the energy, passion, and talent of members when the WWAC was, for many, “the only show in town.” Recent works by member artists will be featured in a slide show accompanied by interviews. This exhibition is sponsored by the Alper Initiative for Washington Art.
